This article aims to explain the relevance of financial theory and valuation to strategy formulation, to describe the major developments in valuation techniques and to comment on their relative strengths and weaknesses, and to present elements of a new valuation framework, together with recent empirical results, that overcome many of the problems associated with traditional methods. Some strategists believe that strategy is a different discipline separate from finance and valuation. Notions of strategy are proposed which are concerned primarily with positioning or outmanoeuvring rivals. Business is about making money, and any strategic decision must ultimately be described in terms of a set of likely financial consequences for the organization that can be gauged.
