Why the Bottom Line Isn’t! began when the authors asked a simple question: How can two companies in the same industry with similar earnings have vastly different market values? In answering that question, authors Dave Ulrich and Norm Smallwood demystify theories of intangible value and show that the bottom line is about much more than just earnings–it’s about building long-term value through assets not accounted for on a company’s financial statements, such as leadership, brand, corporate culture, and ability to attract talent. The authors use real-world examples from various industries to show how intangibles drive market value; even more, they provide the tools to make it happen in your company.
