An All Round Approach To Evaluating A Business
An accurate appreciation of the value of any business must include some qualititative features such as the risk stemming from poor corporate governance, and the general conditions that affect the industry or sector the business is in.
In this workshop we introduce a structure for assessing vital issues such as-
- How well run is this company ?
- How exposed is it to risk arising from poor corporate governance practices ?
- How protected is it from a damaging scandal or corruption case ?
- Are there checks and balances to prevent managers pursuing their own interests against the company ?
- How transparent is the company to investors and potential investors ?
- How capable are the directors, do they understand their role on behalf of investors ?
We will also identify the most common features of an industry or sector to analyse, and how to approach this task. In particular we will introduce 'Porters 5 Forces Model', the most widely used model for industry analysis taught in MBA Programs all over the world.
The training workshop will involve practical learning activities including group tasks such as -
- case study analysis and scenario-based training methods
- the practical application of the methods
The training workshop will be conducted by Australian-based Professor and Industry Consultant Dr Dirk Maclean, PhD, MBA
