Book Review: The GPS Paradigm by Nitin Potdar
Corporate restructuring is a vital instrument in the construction of a new-generation of reengineered enterprises that can compete globally. The GPS Paradigm by Nitin Potdar, written from a practical and historic viewpoint, explores in detail the methods and strategies that inspire M&As. This book gives a broad overview to the steps of M&A and gives the reader an understanding of the vocabulary.
The GPS Paradigm is a practical book that connects valuation to corporate strategy and value based management. Nitin Potdar’s writing is academic and covers more ground with regards to different aspects of mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures.
Along with all-new case studies that illustrate how valuation techniques and principles are applied in real-world situations, this comprehensive guide reflects the new developments in academic finance, changes in accounting, and an enhanced global perspective. From experiences in different industries for many years, Nitin Potdar has given us tons of research & insight that would never be revealed and summarized in any other documents.
Written from the perspective of how things are actually done, rather than offering dry theories, The GPS Paradigm is very accessible and would be easy to follow even for people with little to no previous knowledge. It creates an interdisciplinary, multinational M&A viewpoint and considers M&A as a process rather than as a single transaction. Nitin Potdar relies on economy, finance, strategy, law and organisational theories to understand the interconnected nature of different stages of M&A. The book’s central focus is on how to tackle challenges using M&A as an instrument to create shareholder value, how M&A risks can be mitigated and how odds of success in acquisitions can be increased.
The GPS Paradigm provides breakthrough thinking about how to conceptualize and realize collaborative value. With a lot of case examples from around the globe and plenty of references, the book reveals how M&A between businesses and organizations can most effectively co-create significant economic, social, and environmental value for society, organizations, and individuals. This essential resource features the ground-breaking example, GPS framework (Ground Intelligence, Unconventional Partnerships, Strategic Solutions), that can be used for analysing the sources, forms, and processes of value creation in merger of businesses and organisations.
This book is unbeatable for the practitioner who needs the tools for valuing a company or must understand how others do just that.
