This book represents the cutting-edge of the theory and practice of business strategy -- written in Jacques Magliolo's trademark exciting and accessible style. As the author says, many companies fail in South Africa for lack of a strategy, and in this text Magliolo -- himself an experienced business analyst and strategist presents entrepreneurs, corporate owners and managers with the tools for creating a plan that will enable them to survive and grow a profitable enterprise in a rapidly changing and hostile global corporate environment. Using a blend of theory and practical exercises, the author lays the foundation for creating a business plan, the keys to which are detailed research, due diligence and proper valuation. "The Corporate Mechanic" includes the author's unique model for devising, implementing and monitoring strategy, called The Chairman's Office. Techniques for carrying out research, assessing corporate problems, identifying new trends and conducting thorough due diligence are highlighted throughout the book with practical examples. Topics covered include: the importance of strategy; strategic techniques; troubleshooting; corporate deals; due diligence; valuation.

The book also contains a glossary of important terms and a detailed case study of a valuation of a company.
