Value Acceleration Program

The highly structured Value Acceleration Program focuses on increasing the overall value of your business by concentrating on many of the intangibles that drive higher business valuations.

Value Acceleration Program: 12 Months of Concentrated Support

Once you have completed either a Business Exit Boot Camp or 360 Exit Plan, take your Prioritized Action Plan and work with us for the next 12 months to integrate the identified areas of improvement into your business and life.

Would these businesses be valued the same way?

The highly structured Value Acceleration Program focuses on increasing the overall value of your business by concentrating on many of the intangibles (like those shown above) that drive higher business valuations. These items typically include:

  • De-risking activities
  • Bookkeeping, accounting and reporting improvements
  • Focusing on structural, human, social and customer capital – can include documenting policies and procedures, HR development, addressing customer concentration issues, marketing development/systemization, etc.
  • Product development
  • Management development
  • Decreasing owner dependence, increasing transferability
  • Focus on recurring revenue
  • Legal, financial and tax advisory team development

The 12-month Value Acceleration Program begins with long term business, financial and personal goal setting. Once completed, long term goals are broken into 1-year objectives, then 90 day “sprints” and 30-day milestones. We lead the one-on-one discussions with each owner, integrate family members (if appropriate) for personal and financial discussions, as well as lead separate ongoing workshops with key staff responsible for business 30 and 90 day objectives.

As you begin to build more value into your business through these activities, the multiple you will receive when you choose to sell your business will increase in tandem.

Benefits of this structured program also include:

  • Clear accountability and measured results
  • Long-term strategic initiatives are broken into manageable 90 day chunks (sprints)
  • Getting employees and management to think like owners
  • Can be used as an employee development tool
  • Owner goals are at the center of the plan

The biggest benefit of building and focusing on value-adding activities is that it makes the timing of your business exit irrelevant. Contact Erin Fenstermaker at erin@birdseyeadvisory.com to learn more.

Every company that feels they are ready (or nearly ready) to move towards significant capital investment, acquisition or strategic merger should reach out to BirdsEye Advisory Group and partake in their Exit Planning Boot Camp. Like the name says, it’s an intense project, and I would recommend it even if you AREN’T considering an exit in the near future. Every stone of your company is turned over, examined and evaluated ~ essential in understanding the true health and readiness for scale or sale of your company.  The structure of the program makes it relatively easy to walk through every aspect thoroughly and thoughtfully. Erin and Carol helped us hone in on where we excelled, what still needed some refinement, and what holes were empty and needed to be filled.  The work they did with us, their thoughtful insights, and action plan recommendations have helped our team move to the next level faster than we would have been able to do on our own.
