This is a draft of a text book to show how investors and analysts can look beneath companies’ financial statements into their operations, to better value and turn around these companies.
In the current climate when financial data is less trusted than many times in the past, the book makes accessible ideas from state-of-the-art research on how to “look under the hood” of a company so as to “kick its tires and tune up its engine.”
Readers of this book will learn steps and models so they can answer questions like: 1. Which operational indicators best suggest future financial performance? 2. How does one do operational due diligence? 3. What are best practices in operational turnarounds.
This new book is now (2013) released! Please visit OperationsForensics or the MIT Press website.
