About The End of Shareholder Value


"The End of Shareholder Value" is a highly critical book to the shareholder value philosophy, making a compelling case for the broadening of corporate purpose, objectives and values. Kennedy predicts (2000) clearly and convincingly how he expects the various stakeholder groups will react to the shareholder value philosophy if implemented in an imbalanced and one-sided way.


These stakeholder groups are:

   1. Employees,

   2. Government,

   3. Suppliers,

   4. Customers.


A classic already, bearing in mind what Bernard Shaw once wrote: "A man never tells you anything until you contradict him", this book is a "must" for any top manager or board director.
