M Valuation & Succession Planning

With more businesses changing hands as demographics bring owners to prepare for retirement by transitioning the company to family or designated successor or planning the actual outright sale. This takes forethought and preparation.

Industry experts advise a timeline of 6-10 months to sell a business on average, longer depending on the market conditions and other factors.

Because of this planning and market positioning are crucial.

M Market Positioning

It’s not only about where you have been but where you want to go. Many organizations expend considerable energy without understanding what or how to measure success. Such questions like “When and how do you know you and your team have reached a key decision point where a different focus is required?” require awareness.

If you have no destination point and come to a fork in the road, any path will do. However it does not guarantee you will choose the successful one.

Positioning Strategy
