Creating Strategic Value

How to apply value investing principles to organizational management

The principles of value investing have resonated with savvy practitioners in the world of finance for a long time. Creating Strategic Value explores how the core ideas and methods of value investing can be profitably applied to corporate strategy and management. The book builds from an analysis of traditional value investing concepts to their strategic applications. It surveys value investing’s past, present and future, drawing on influential texts, from Graham and Dodd’s time-tested works to more recent studies, to reveal potent managerial lessons.

It explains the theoretical aspects of value investing-consistent approaches to corporate strategy and management and details how they can be successfully employed through practical case studies that demonstrate value realization in action. Creating Strategic Value analyzes the applicability of key ideas such as the margin-of-safety principle to corporate strategy in a wide range of areas beyond stocks and bonds. It highlights the importance of an “information advantage”—knowing something that a firm’s competitors either do not know or choose to ignore—and explains how corporate managers can apply this key value investing differentiator.

"Offering numerous insights into the use of time-tested value investing principles in new fields, Creating Strategic Value was written for corporate strategy and management practitioners at all levels as well as for students and researchers," said Joseph Calandro, Jr.
