Begin with the End in Mind
The Value Acceleration Methodology is a strategic framework for executing exit planning. It is the value management system that prepares owners for an exit at any time, eliminating the stress of being caught off guard by an exit. The Value Acceleration Methodology was created to help both owners understand that exit planning is simply a good business strategy.
Exit planning is not just a plan. It is a strategy rooted in execution that grows value while expanding options so that an owner can transition the business on their terms when they are ready. The Value Acceleration Methodology aligns an owner’s business, personal, and ﬁnancial needs.
Begin With the End in Mind
One of the biggest regrets of owners without a transition strategy is that they failed to integrate the value acceleration process to prepare their business, and themselves, for transition. Owners realize after the fact that they left money on the table because they did not maximize the value of the business before the time of exit.
Failing to plan for your future after your business exit, is like saying, ‘I am not going to plan for next year because it is not next year yet!’ A good business strategy focuses on growing and de-risking the business. The Value Acceleration Methodology gets you there.
You should always be looking at your business from the exit lens. The Value Acceleration Methodology helps you realize just how important the intangible assets are: Human, Customer, Structural, and Social. If you focus on these, not only will it drive value to your business, but also will help you grow and increase proﬁts.
Business owners often feel uncomfortable thinking about exiting their business and spend most of their energy trying to build proﬁts instead. Many business owners place a huge emphasis on increasing proﬁtability. This is understandable since a business must be proﬁtable to remain solvent. But what they fail to see is that this approach is shortsighted. Of course, you want to be proﬁtable, but by working to increase the multiple through the Value Acceleration Methodology you can create real value in your business. In the process, you will often increase proﬁtability organically.
OWNERS MUST ASK THEMSELVES – Am I satisﬁed with the current performance and value of my business? If not, they need to focus on exit planning utilizing the Value Acceleration Methodology.
