A good business friend once said to me ‘run your business today like you want to sell it tomorrow’. He was an expert on strategy and his statement meant that all companies should seek to continually maximise value, build best practice and strive for perpetual improvement.
Start with the basics – what do you want, when do you want it and what options are available to help you to achieve this?
We can run workshops with owners and senior management teams to develop a strategy, which would include clear steps, allocation of responsibility, and measurements. This may lead on to organic growth and tidying up the business in preparation for sale, or it could involve fundraising or a buy and build strategy. The key is to be clear about your own objectives and timescales.
We have a range of documents available to help you prepare your business for sale in our Resources section, which we will be happy to go through with you – Selling Your Business
