Strategic Financial Analysis for Value-Enhancing Decisions

Managing a business is all about taking decisions – operational as well as strategic. Every decision – from whether to make a strategic business acquisition, to whether to purchase a new water cooler for the office – has financial implications. If the ultimate goal of any 
business is to create value – for its shareholders, for its other stakeholders and for the society at large – and the responsibility of every decision maker is to contribute to this value generation, it becomes imperative to understand how decisions taken in a business context add to or detract from business value. 

And above all, it is essential for every decision maker to know what constitutes value!
