Product Description

Review

"Martin and Petty have written the clearest, most up-to-date book yet on value based management. They cut through the hype to focus on the link between operational and financial choices and shareholder value. I highly recommend this book to corporate managers focused on approaches to corporate value creation."--Tim Opler, Principal, WR Hambrecht and Co.

"Martin and Petty effectively explain for the corporate financier why maximizing shareholder value is not the same as maximizing earnings per share. This is a book for anyone looking to add value to their business, no matter what the circumstances." --Donald Chew, Partner, Stern Stewart and Co., and editor of the Bank of America Journal of Applied Corporate Finance

"By integrating real-world examples with academic literature, Martin and Petty highlight the promises and perils of value based management in a detailed yet comprehensible manner. This book will appeal to anyone interested in understanding innovations in corporate practice as managers pursue the goal of enhancing shareholder value."--Stuart L. Gillian, Research Economist, TIAA-CREF Institute and Former Associate Chief Economist, United States Securities and Exchange Commission

Format: Hardcover
Martin's book is an excellent introduction to the practice of Value Based Management. Although it is far from being an MBA type book, it explains the basics and shows some good examples. Maybe the strongest point of the book is the comparison of several approaches used by the biggest consulting companies sponsoring VBM: Stern Stewart's EVA versus BCG's and McKinsey's measures. When you're ready to climb another step, the best choice is Young and O'Byrne's "EVA and Value Based Management". It goes deep in details of implementation of EVA based systems, is comprehensive and technically advanced and also give pros and cons of the measure.

Format: Hardcover
This book, along with Young and O'Byrne's "EVA and Value-Based Management," are perhaps the only two books you really need to develop a comprehensive understanding of shareholder value and value based mangement. In fact, the book is almost equivalent to completing MBA-level coursework in both corporate finance and competitive strategy (relax, the book is far more exciting). If you've been thinking of implementing -- or have already implemented -- a value based management program, you should add this book to your library... soon.

Bit dated and heavy going but a great resource regardless. If you are strong financially, you will get a lot out of this book.

I bought the book to read for extra credit. This book isn.t for the beginning reader. Make sure you have time to understand the concepts if you ever plan to use them or explain them
