Summary

This book poses the question: Can a private company be managed using the same criteria as a publicly traded company, basing its decisions on the same financial tools? The answer is yes, and the main objective here is to describe a basic dynamic valuation model through which senior managements can determine the "market" value of a company at any moment. In other words, although these companies remain private, the management model proposed in the book makes their decision-making process as rigorous and professional as if they were listed companies, by using appropriate financial tools that serve as the main support in the decision-making process. The model also encourages the use of different risk management tools to analyze some of the variables that affect value, so that after establishing the allowed movement ranges (risk map), hedging or mitigation mechanisms can be implemented. The objectives outlined in this book are relevant for management practice since they seek to promote a systematic, orderly, documented, and value-oriented decision-making process.

    "Messrs. Gow and Kells have made an invaluable contribution, writing in an amused tone that nevertheless acknowledges the firms' immense power and the seriousness of their neglect of traditional responsibilities. 'The Big Four' will appeal to all those interested in the future of the profession--and of capitalism itself." —Jane Gleeson-White, Wall Street Journal With staffs that are collectively larger than the Russian army and combined revenues of over $130 billion a year, the Big Four accounting firms—Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and KPMG—are a keystone of global commerce. But leading scholar Ian Gow and award-winning author Stuart Kells warn that a house of cards may be about to fall. Stretching back to the Medicis in Renaissance Florence, this book is a fascinating story of wealth, power, and luck. The founders of the Big Four lived surprisingly colorful lives. Samuel Price, for example, married his own niece. Between the world wars, Nicholas Waterhouse collected postage stamps while also hosting decadent parties in his fashionable London home. All four firms have endured major calamities in recent decades. There have been hundreds of court cases and legal prosecutions for failed audits, tax scandals, and breaches of independence. The firms have come so close to “extinction level events” that regulators have required them to prepare “living wills.” And today, the Big Four face an uncertain future—thanks to their push into China, their vulnerability to digital disruption and competition, and the hazards of providing traditional services in a new era of transparency. This account of the past, present, and likely future of the Big Four is essential reading for anyone perplexed or fascinated by professional services, working or considering working in the industry, or simply curious about the fate of the global economy.

    As President and CEO at Scripps Health, one of Americas  most prestigious health systems, Chris Van Gorder has presided over  a dramatic turnaround, catapulting Scripps from near bankruptcy to  a dominant market position. While hospitals and health systems  nationwide have laid people off or are closing their doors, Scripps  is financially healthy, has added almost 5,000 employees, and has  developed a reputation as a marquee employer, recognized year after  year by Fortune Magazine, Working Mother, the AARP,  and othersas a Best Places to Work. What are the  secrets to this remarkable story, and what can other leaders and  businesses learn from Van Gorders success as a  leader?  Van Gorder traces his track record to his background as a  California police officer, and The Frontline  Leader shares the leadership techniques learned from his  service, grounded in the philosophy of responsibility, honesty, and  public service learned as a member of the force. Police work is  about protecting the community, making it a better place, educating  citizens, developing warm and caring relationships, and ultimately  doing the right thing, not the convenient thing, so as to give  citizens someone to look up to and believe in. Businesses  who follow these same principles lay the groundwork for  lasting sucecss.     As much as companies talk about accountability and spend millions  on corporate social responsibility programs, managers  seldom understand what practical steps to take for an ethic of  service that makes accountability meaningful. The  Frontline Leader exposes readers to specific tactics and  implementation steps they can use starting today to take  responsibility, inspire others, achieve breakout results for their  organization and move up into higher positions. By understanding  and deploying these steps, readers learn that cultivating a deep  personal practice of accountability isnt just the right  thing to do but also the most effective and profitable path a  leader can take. They understand that daily practices that seem  unrelated to the running of organizations can in fact confer  surprising business advantage. Armed with these techniques, The  Frontline Leader will help anyone become a better leader.
