What is Managing for Value? Description
Managing for Value (MfV) is used as a synonym of (one of the three components of) Value Based Management.
It is also the subtitle of a groundbreaking book on Value Based Management "The Value Imperative" by James M. McTaggart ('94):
The Value Imperative
While moving beyond the strategies that managers have employed to create
shareholder value - now the standard for business performance - management
experts James McTaggart, Peter Kontes, and Michael Mankins revealed their
powerful new framework for the systematic, day-to-day management of shareholder
value. The authors attack head-on the fundamental weaknesses in current management
practices, namely, the foothold that budgeting has over strategic planning
and the lack of imagination in management plans that prevents real changes
and consequences. They provide a systematic approach to "Value Based Management"
that eliminates these weaknesses. They offer proven strategies for managing
large, complex companies to consistently produce superior results for stockholders.
Starting with the principle that "cash flows drive value," McTaggart, Kontes, and Mankins show how to create a single governing objective that will enable managers to make decisions most likely to increase the company's competitive, organizational, and financial strength. Building on the objective of maximizing shareholder value, they outline the value based management framework that directly links a company's strategies and organization to its value in capital markets. Using real examples, they describe how to develop business and corporate strategies that substantially improve competitive position and increase market value, often within only two to five years. And as most large companies lack the internal processes that are necessary to manage for value on a sustained basis, the authors show managers how to build the five key processes that are institutional value drivers: governance, strategic planning, resource allocation, performance management, and top management compensation. Mastering these capabilities is fundamental to the ongoing, consistent creation of shareholder value over time.
Besides this, the term Managing for Value (MfV) is also used to describe a new perspective on Value Based Management, emphasizing company culture change aspects and focusing on translating efforts for sustained profitability and positive share price movement.
