Use the Shareholder Value tab to perform a sensitivity analysis using a limited number of value driver variables from the Shareholder Value model. Because this is a subset, calculations are faster and Strategic Finance aligns the sensitivity analysis with the Full Model.

To set the shareholder value options for sensitivity analysis:

In Sensitivity of, select the variable for sensitivity analysis:

In Relative to (top), select the top variable of the matrix on which the sensitivity is performed in addition to the increment type and amount.

This includes these value drivers:

The default is Sales Growth Rate unless you run Sensitivity Analysis with another value.

In

**Change %**, enter the percent multiplied or added to the Relative to account.You cannot enter negative amounts.

If you enter 2% for Sales Growth Rate here and select Multiplying in the Change % field, Strategic Finance multiplies Sales Growth Rate by 98% to obtain the -2% result and multiplies Sales Growth Rate by 102% to obtain the +2%. So, 10% becomes 9.8% and 10.2%.

If you enter 2% for Sales Growth Rate here and select Adding in the Change % field, Strategic Finance adds or subtracts 2% to obtain the result. So 10% becomes 8% and 12% growth rate.

In And relative to (left), select the left variable of the matrix on which the sensitivity is performed.

The variables are the same as in the Relative (top) text box. Default: Profit Margin.
