Development and Implementation of Shareholder Value Measures

for Improved Employee Productivity/Development


The company`s annual planning process had become more of an exercise in accounting rather

than a planning and communications tool. This situation had developed because management

failed to clearly articulate the financial metrics that were critical for the company`s ongoing

success and failed to establish measurable objectives for each operating unit.

Action Plan:

Directed the controller and the senior site accountants to create a simplified report that

bridged the operating unit`s monthly financial statements to the publicly reported statistics

used by investors and management in evaluation of unit and company performance.

Created an educational program that explained the company`s key shareholder value

drivers and how each department could contribute to the value-creation process.

Visited each operating unit and conducted a one-and-one-half day educational session

to explain and discuss what the new financial metrics meant and why they were


Redesigned the annual operating plan format to focus on a discussion of the operating

unit`s key business risks and to include measurable results for the year and for all

capital programs.

Created a “flash report card,” which highlighted sub-optimal performance in areas such

as capital rationing and inventory management.


The educational program was a huge success and the program was rolled out to the

other three regions in the company. Many individuals commented on the fact that they

finally understood how each one of them could contribute to increasing the company’s

profitability and share price. Establishing measurable objectives for each operating unit

and each significant spending program led to a reduction in spending and a more

rational evaluation of spending requests. Equally important, by identifying the expected

returns from each program, management was better able to allocate the company’s

financial resources and the employees viewed the capital allocation decisions to be less


Corporate Restructuring of Assets to Optimize Return on Invested Capital (ROIC)


A significant company asset had become a financial drain to the corporation. It was losing

money and consuming cash. Because of these problems, the business unit`s management

was focusing its attention more on secondary objectives such as safety, housekeeping and

the environment than on addressing the primary cost and production issues. The majority of

the workforce was unaware of the precarious financial situation the business unit was in.

Action Plan:

Conducted employee meetings to explain the serious financial situation and to advise

them of the time frame for implementing the restructuring plan.

Implemented a capital-spending freeze.

Created a multi-discipline restructuring team to evaluate all cost-reduction alternatives.

Developed minimum financial targets that had to be attained to prevent the closure of

the operation.

Invited suppliers to participate in the restructuring plan and encouraged them to suggest

avenues of reducing costs or improving efficiencies.


Reduced costs by 2.5 per year by downsizing the workforce. Created an alternative

production plan that maintained production at 90 percent of the previous levels. The unit

became cash positive, which prevented its closure.

Optimized Administrative Enterprise Resource Planning Capabilities with Reduced Costs


Given a six-month timeframe to combine the administrative groups of two subsidiaries in

order to reduce overheads. The decision was based on declining product prices and

pessimistic projections for future prices.

Action Plan:

Identified which functions could be combined, which employees would be retained and

developed an organizational structure for the new regional office.

Conducted employee meetings to explain the rationale for the restructuring and its

implementation time frame.

Developed severance packages and employee assistance or relocation packages.

Began the process of cross training the remaining employees on the functions being

transferred. Established a time frame for the transfer of activities to the responsible


Re-engineered certain accounting and administrative practices reflecting the planned

reduction in manpower.

50 percent and payback from this restructuring was achieved within ten months.
