The number of businesses that will hit the market in the coming years will far outstrip the number of interested buyers. [See our article on this research.]
A consequence of this excess supply is that only the most attractive businesses will find a buyer.
Although there are several important factors that make one business more attractive than another, a key issue is the strength of the leadership team. The strength of a leadership team not only impacts the value of a business but affects the likelihood that the deal will close at all.
Whether you (or your client) want to maximize the likelihood of selling a business (and selling it at full price) or you want to ensure that a business being considered for purchase has a strong leadership team, the strength of the leadership team must be objectively established.
That’s what our Leadership Team Assessment will do. We conduct a 360 Assessment on each of the top leaders (usually 3-10 executives) and provide a Leadership Team Assessment Summary along with a detailed Assessment Report (30-40 pages) on each of the leaders.
This team assessment is an invaluable tool in establishing the strength of the leadership bench and/or highlighting the areas that need bolstering in order to maximize/establish the business’ value.
