Preparing To Sell Your Company - Conducting a Business Health Checkup

Protect and build company worth with a comparison to best-in-class and increase the chances of a future euphoric exit event

A question we will ask clients in the early stages of working with them is what is their approach for determining how their company compares to those that are best in class. The answer is most often that they have a general feel for this but don’t have a good way of really knowing what best in class is. Our suggestion is to periodically compare their business, not to itself, but to those best in class.

To help them do this, we offer Yosemite Diagnostics (Yosemite Diagnostic Tools) and specifically our Stethoscope tool . Stethoscope is a health diagnostic tool that guides an owner/CEO through 10 business categories and over 100 thought provoking statements. Each category and related statement is designed to help you ask new, insightful questions about your business and see how best in class companies operate in each.

Protect and build your company worth by rethinking what you’re comparing your business to. Let Stethoscope guide you to new thinking, new dialog with your team and get an overall business health score. And with the score, get practical tips on steps you can take where our diagnostic tool identifies opportunity for improvement.

Let us help you conduct your business health checkup today and receive a 25% “friends of Yosemite” discount. Where you see “enter a coupon”, simply use DIAGNOSE25. And once you've completed it, give us a call at 949.874.0787 and we'll happy to offer additional insights based on the health score you receive. (Start Your Stethoscope Diagnostic Here)
