Hi, everyone! For my first project rotation I am working in Revenue Management in the Cheese and Dairy business unit with some really amazing people. In general, revenue management is tasked with tracking how our company’s various products perform at different price levels such as promotional pricing, etc.
My particular project is called Scientific Price Management. Essentially, what I’m doing is building a financial model to help the business unit better understand the impact of pricing decisions. Though I am working in Revenue Management, my project requires a lot of cross functional work. This project would not be possible without participation from others in category finance, sales, and commodity finance. Upon completion the model will be able to answer a variety of questions that will be used to make better pricing decisions.
I am happy to report that my first project has been a great experience! I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from really smart people, have chances to critically think, grow as a leader, and to have a positive impact.
