From the back cover:

The Game of Value Creation takes you inside the world of active investors, who acquire companies that offer substantial opportunities for value creation and turn them into success stories using a proven, calculated, and tactical approach, so that you too can benefit from the strategies that work for the big fish in your own business.

Karl Yaacoub, a former investment banker and private equity investor, reveals how to view a business as a series of interconnected parts while applying the same principles as world-leading institutions to help your organization achieve success. 

The framework he proposes emphasizes the growth, and efficiencies, a business can achieve through current and yet-to-exist capabilities, the optimization of resources to maximize organizational benefits, and the need for protecting a business so it can remain in the game for the long term, with or without its current leadership.

Turning the subject of corporate value creation into a short and actionable read, The Game of Value Creation offers you a serious, yet exciting, pathway to the big leagues, so that your business can attain its highest valuation yet.

“Today’s business needs people who understand the mission. The Game of Value Creation uses deep understanding of owner expectations, and sustainable financial goals tied to smart business practices, for success. This “no-nonsense” approach to corporate value creation focuses on proven business methodology and tactics to enhance and prolong the life of any operating business. Discover the secrets to building a lasting legacy from an institutional investment insider, and see your visions become reality!” – JJ Hebert, Entrepreneur and USA Today/ WSJ bestselling author
