Operations

In an increasingly competitive global environment, every day it becomes more imperative for firms around the world to unlock value from operations. In response to this call to duty, many organizations have in one way or another made significant investments in initiatives such as Lean, Six Sigma, and Total Quality Management. However, these concepts lack a key link: they do not identify how increased operational efficiencies translate into shareholder value accretion.

At Stern Value Management, we provide a holistic framework that views operations as the key link between strategic planning and shareholder value creation. That is, we examine not only how to maximize revenues and minimize costs, but also how to efficiently use assets to drive shareholder value creation.

Our operations discipline embodies continuous improvement as it identifies the key opportunities for increased efficiencies and their impact on value creation. Our ultimate objective is to help our clients pull the right levers in operations management to generate superior Total Shareholder Return.

We help our clients develop world-class operations in the following areas:
  • Value-Based Operations Analysis and Management
  • Operational Risk Management
  • Working Capital Management
