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.
