Prepare to sell a business for maximum value.

Ready to sell your business for the highest possible return? Get more for your investment than just a multiple of revenue or EBITDA by using the Holistic Maturity Model™ as your selling guide.

A business maturity model that delivers a prescriptive path for maximum returns.

The Holistic Maturity Model™ is a framework that helps businesses assess and improve their capabilities prior to selling. Distributed as an assessment, our model evaluates the maturity of a business across core attributes and sub-attributes, along with their interdependencies. A customized report details the findings and provides a comprehensive and prescriptive approach to pursue targeted initiatives to increase your valuation. By using the HMM™ a business will increase its earnings potential and bolster a buyers confidence in the sale.
