Long-term value creation begins with clarity about the purpose of the firm and about management's core responsibilities. Value creation is critically tied to how well management develops and maintains a knowledge-building culture. These ideas are plainly communicated in this PowerPoint presentation which summarizes my book, Value Creation Thinking. The presentation is well suited for classroom discussion and includes an explanation of the life-cycle valuation model, which is used extensively by money management firms worldwide. Also included are long-term, life-cycle charts of major firms that illustrate how managerial skill and competition interact to determine firms' long-term financial performance and, ultimately, shareholder returns.

Keywords: value creation, life cycle, CFROI, culture, excess return, capitalism
