There comes a time for every business owner, shareholder and director, when their thoughts turn to exiting their business for the highest possible price and maximum return.
Don’t Leave Money on the Table
Professional buyers of companies tell us that most business sellers leave £000,000s to £Ms ‘on the table’ because they;
- Fail to show consistent and clear growth
- Don’t have a focused strategy
- Can’t demonstrate the unique value their business delivers to its customers
- Haven’t developed a realistic succession plan or professional management structure
- Have failed to future proof their business systems, processes and culture
- Struggle to outline risks and mitigating strategies in a convincing way
Professional business sellers say all of the above and point out that it typically takes between two to five years of focused action to put the package together and make the business proposition so compelling that it adds £M to the price that buyers will offer.
That is your challenge and opportunity. You can make your business worth more and reap the rewards, by getting the right strategy in place.

Plan – Do – Review – Adjust
Taking the simple, proven and effective process of Plan – Do – Review – Adjust and appling it through a structured methodology for developing and executing business strategy. You end up with a blueprint for your future success.
Mind you, when we say structured, you may think that implies a rigid, monolithic and top down approach. It doesn’t.
The process is much more emergent, dynamic and adaptive. And thus totally suited to the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment we all operate in.
It works as a ‘loose/tight’ system.
Every element is linked, one to each other.
You work out the critical linkages and then shape them so that all the elements of your strategy work seamlessly to drive towards your goal.
