Costing and pricing involve distinct sets of decisions. Identifying something as a cost does not necessarily or in every instance mean that it will be reflected in a price. By the same token a decision about the 'price' should not be based on unexamined or erroneous assumptions about the costs that should or should not be recovered in a given activity. Costs and price are distinct, but must be related in a transparent and consistent manner. Therefore, participants on this course will be able to examine the issues of costing and pricing in relation to their businesses.
