Synopsis: A new look at delivering effective shareholder value from Peter Kontes, a true leader in the world of strategic management

In The CEO, Strategy, and Shareholder Value, Peter Kontes, a true leader in the strategic management field, outlines the key to creating and growing shareholder value. The proper focus, contends Kontes, is in using quantitative measurements as guideposts on the path to success. The book first outlines the basics of the argument Kontes is making. He then briefly covers the five most important areas for business leaders, followed by a more detailed look at each of the focus areas. Finally, Kontes provides readers with a road map to implementing his suggestions.

  • Presents an argument for a more holistic approach to delivering shareholder value
  • Defines and then elaborates a new approach to strategic management
  • Written by a true thought leader in the field, regularly featured in publications such as Fortune and BusinessWeek

Never before have business leaders experienced the kind of tough decisions they are being forced to make as the economy undergoes incredibly rapid shifts. The common sense guide to successful leadership, The CEO, Strategy, and Shareholder Value delivers exactly the kind of solid, dynamic advice that will keep your organization moving on an upward path.

From the Back Cover: Praise for The CEO, Strategy, and Shareholder Value

"Peter Kontes presents a clear-eyed framework for making the top management decisions that have a large and lasting impact on company performance. If your schedule only allows you time to read a few books a year, this should be one of them."
?James E. (Jes) Staley, CEO, J.P. Morgan Investment Bank

"This is a first-class book that can make a difference in achieving results."
?Jim Kilts, former chairman and CEO, The Gillette Company

"Peter Kontes has written a masterful and eminently readable book that makes clear the real work of the CEO. He debunks much of the voodoo that surrounds trendy management and performance concepts. It's a must-read for all who are charged with leadership in these turbulent times."
?Arthur Martinez, former chairman and CEO, Sears, Roebuck and Company

"The marriage of theories on leadership, strategy, and finance is long overdue. In this book, Kontes brings these themes together around the principle that growing economic profit over time is, or should be, the common overriding objective of all three. He cogently argues and amply illustrates the pitfalls of conventional business practices across many areas, including target setting, competitive positioning, and capital management. Executives who take the time to read this book will come away with a wealth of ideas for changing these practices and significantly improving the performance of their companies."
?Stan Garstka, Deputy Dean and Professor in the Practice of Management, Yale School of Management
