Value consulting: Analyzing the value of strategic decisions

Strategic initiatives undertaken at today’s most successful organizations often share two common goals: increasing value and mitigating risk. But how much value should you expect from investing in additional resources, negotiating strategic agreements or launching a new business venture? Could other alternatives deliver greater value? How do you link shareholder value to strategic goals and business performance?

Answering these questions requires a deeper understanding of the value, risks and opportunities of major decisions. It also requires quantifying your alternatives to build consensus regarding strategic direction and outline a clearer path toward accomplishing your goals as the uncertain future unfolds.
