About the book
Maybe you've wondered at some point why, even without any indication of strategic ormanagement errors, certain companies hardly ever manage to generate shareholder valueover the years. In those companies, the lion's share of the value created goes not to theowners but to the management or customers.
This book will give you new insights intohow and where you can make meaningful and profitable use of your financial resources.
«Leading is about balancing the interests of customers, suppliers, employees and owners. Whilst this may be obvious, what is less so is how the legal construct of a business canhelp or hinder in that subtle balancing act. Lucatelli does a fine job of opening the eyes of the uninitiated to the critical challenges of leadership for value. A fine, important book.»
Emmanuel Gobillot, author of «The Connected Leader», «LeaderShift» and «Follow the Leader»
«Putting good corporate governance into practice is important to the economic success of any company. According to the author, the main reason things go wrong at many stock corporations is that they have the wrong legal form. An interesting and unsettling thesis.»
Prof. Dr. Roger M. Kunz, Universität Basel
«We've all seen the annual rankings of the best CEOs or most successful companies. But they're rarely based on the ability to create sustained shareholder value. This book shows which stock market favorites are actually interesting for long-term equity investors and which ones aren't. Be prepared for some surprises!»
Daniel Manser, Derivative Partners Media
«This book should be on the required reading list for top managers running talent-based firms--such as movie studios or sports companies--who will find interesting and surprising insights and ideas regarding where to direct their talent recruitment and management efforts.»
Professor Jean-Paul Thommen, European Business School and University of Zurich
