Total Shareholder Value: Overview, Purpose, and Impact

Total Shareholder Value is the summation of dividends and capital appreciation delivered by a firm to its stakeholders. It includes returns gained via consistent dividends, share buybacks, and any increase in the stock price. A mission every C-Level executive strives for—delivering meaningful and persistent growth in Total Shareholder Value—ultimately serves as the hallmark for corporate success.

The purpose of assessing TSV is to ensure that a company's strategic decisions ultimately translate into financial wellbeing, thereby driving investor confidence. A hike in Total Shareholder Value signals to the current as well as prospective shareholders that the organization is profitable and is likely to continue on the same trajectory. This instills faith in the minds of investors and can draw more investment to the organization, creating a positive snowball effect.

Strategic Tools to Drive Total Shareholder Value

Strategic Planning plays a vital role in mapping the trajectory of Total Shareholder Value growth. A comprehensive strategy includes expanding market share, identifying opportunities for diversification, tightening the cost structure, and leveraging technology to enhance productivity and revenue.

2. Performance Management:

Performance Management, rightly used, can be a potent driver for the growth of Total Shareholder Value. It ensures that the strategy taken up by the executive team translates seamlessly into reality. By setting appropriate key performance indicators that align with TSV-centric goals, organizations can deliver sustained growth.

3. Risk Management:

Risk Management is one aspect that often gets sidelined in the pursuit of aggressive growth strategies. However, when adequately factored in, effective risk management can greatly contribute to the protection and the growth of Total Shareholder Value.
