Operations consultant James F. Grebey shows you how to assess the operations and infrastructure of a firm, whether you’re an executive looking to increase the longevity and profitability of your company or a financier trying to evaluate the viability of a potential acquisition. This straightforward guide is packed with extensive checklists and 400 questions that will help managers and investors complete a thorough operational evaluation – and read between the lines when necessary. The information is extraordinarily well organized, and the author eschews jargon, preferring everyday language whenever possible, a habit that sets his book apart from many how-to manuals. getAbstract recommends this comprehensive work to investors and managers responsible for assessing a firm’s viability, and to employees whose firms are going through a due diligence evaluation because this basic understanding of the process will go a long way toward dissipating the clouds of unease that come with all those closed-door meetings.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “Operations Due Diligence” is and how it differs from standard evaluations,
- How to organize an operations assessment,
- What areas of a company you should cover in your due diligence process.
