Exit strategy planning plays a vital role in determining a strategic direction for your company and the future of your business’ legacy. A well-thought out exit strategy can facilitate a smooth transition and minimize disruption for you, your business operation, and position you to optimize the outcome in a manner consistent with your priorities.
Most importantly -- whether your business is large or small -- you need be kept informed of all of your potential options before, and during, your planning process.
