Description

Over the last 25 years a disparate body of management techniques has been developed which seeks to ensure that a business process creates the highest possible value for the owners of, and other stakeholders in, that process. The relevant techniques relate to performance evaluation, decision-making, strategy and organisation. The practical application of these techniques is known as 'value-based management'.
