He explains key strategic lessons that non‐financial executives can learn from the value investing concepts and methodology. Findings – The insights contained within Security Analysis can and should be leveraged by business leaders and strategists to create value for their firms. Practical implications – Graham and Dodd‐based valuation and investment is a viable method with which to assess corporate strategic initiatives (such as mergers and acquisitions, share buy‐backs, etc.). Originality/value – This paper, the first in a business strategy journal, explains how business leaders can become adept at using modern applications of Graham and Dodd‐based valuation insights and technology to inform their strategic decision‐making.
