Galt’s Guiding Principles
Galt & Company believes the best measure of a company’s success is delivering superior shareholder returns compared to industry peers.
Chief Executives who are successful in outperforming their peers share a common belief in five key principles:
1. Establish the right definition of winning and measure of success
2. Capitalize on the fact that shareholder value is always highly concentrated
3. Manage to an explicit value-improvement agenda
4. Deploy differentiated strategies and resource allocation
5. Build the organizational conditions and capabilities to manage shareholder value
These five principles guide Galt & Company’s analytical approach and have helped achieve some of the most notable corporate turnarounds and success stories of the last two decades.
