Context and Application Value-Based Management Edited by Glen Arnold and Matt Davies Over the past ten years hundreds of leading companies worldwide have adopted the principles of value-based management (VBM), an approach to corporate strategy and business organisation in which the primary objective is always shareholder wealth maximisation. As VBM has become more widespread the idea of shareholder value has become integral to business. Consultancies have prospered by selling prescriptions for developing a value-oriented firm and managers thought to be excellent in generating shareholder value are held in high esteem and command huge salaries. This book draws on empirical evidence to demonstrate the success of VBM ideas as well as highlighting many of the hidden questions, doubts and difficulties. It examines the validity of some of the underlying assumptions of VBM and tackles many of the key technical issues. This book provides a timely assessment of the theory and practice of VBM as it grows to maturity.

Modern finance theory suggests that the primary objective of a firm should be to maximise shareholder wealth. Increasingly firms are targeting the creation of value for shareholders as their principal aim. This book examines, in a balanced and objective fashion, the recent development of VBM, the principles on which it is based and the primary techniques that it involves. It provides sophisticated analysis of existing techniques based on up-to-date research, and goes far beyond the various introductory and how-to-do-it books currently available. The book is divided into four sections, each containing contributions from leading practitioners and academics in this field:
* The state of VBM knowledge: theory and evidence
* Challenging shareholder wealth maximisation
* Applying value-based management
* Measuring value: critical perspectives

The business management trend of Value-Based Management (VBM) and the related area of Shareholder Value are attracting considerable interest. Modern finance theory suggests that the primary goal of a firm should be to maximise shareholder wealth and increasingly firms are targeting the creation of value for shareholders as their principal objective. Advocates of this theory suggest that this is not only good for shareholders but also for the company as it encourages investment. This volume provides a critical look at the success and failure of VBM; its development, the principles on which it is based, and the primary techniques that it involves. The authors, Arnold and Davies, examine the is sues arising at all levels of this highly topical management technique and provide a valuable next step for managers and financial professionals who have read the introductory guides and wish to go a step further.
