Value Based Management

The creation of long-term values should be a key objective for public companies, as well as for family owned businesses.  Although it boils down to financial key indicators such as cost of capital, net present value, etc., value-based management covers the entire company. Therefore, a business can only work if all strategies, departments, and management systems are clearly focused on value. We can help you achieve sustainability by:

  • Defining the cost of capital and the relevant performance drivers
  • Implementing value analysis and driver trees
  • Aligning all company strategies and control systems with value
  • Initiating measures to manage and increase value
  • Developing business plans and success scenarios that reflect the development of value
