A conceptual overview of how the Leaseway Transportation Corporation expects to obtain its ultimate objective, i.e., maximizing its warranted equity value, is shown. This entails a mission statement, the establishment of strategic plans, which are developed into business plans, which are strongly influenced by forecasts of activities and events which are not controlled by the company (e.g., the general economic conditions) and which are controlled by the company (e.g., price and service levels and the changes in market value predicated on changes in them), followed by a valuation of the likely scenarios, and an overall judgment as to which set of actions will lead to the attainment of the corporate mission.
