Winning firms are organisations that most successfully master the business issues critical to their performance, and develop the most precise understanding of definitions of value and creation of value. Companies and industries prosper through improvements in competitiveness by leveraging core competencies and competitive intelligence. The social and business atmosphere existing in an economy makes it a binding issue for business enterprises to adopt and adapt themselves to the changing circumstances. The objective of the present book is to highlight and emphasise the divergent contemporary issues that are frequently confronted by business enterprises while taking business decisions so that they may gainfully survive in the corporate world.

 The topics dealt with in the book include corporate finance and its management, corporate governance and E-management, corporate disclosure and transparency, value addition and value analysis, quality control management, corporate social responsibility, corporate risk management, corporate business reorganisation and corporate disinvestment strategy. The book will be immensely useful to teachers and students of management, economics, commerce and all those interested in implementing a successful business plan.
