The objective of all firms is the creation of value. A firm’s strategies describe how it intends to create value over an immediate time frame, and the value opportunities it is searching for over the long term. Value, however, has different meanings to different stakeholders. Firms manage resources to create value through their capabilities to deliver products or services that provide customer value, maintain relationships with resource providers and customers, and organize activities through governance, management systems and processes. To do this, a firm has to create an equitable balance between stakeholders such as management, customers, employees, financiers, unions, suppliers, shareholders, government and society in general.
