The essential goal required is that of determining the most qualified new owner – the individual or group who has the ability and dedication to keep the venture’s stability while at the same time enhancing and expanding the business to its greatest potential.
Likewise, it is also crucial for the original owner to come up with the proper value for the business which will provide the greatest possible benefits from the transfer. Moreover, you need to lay down the plans for achieving a continuing outlook for enhancing the business and endeavor to implement them. Possessing a highly-qualified captain at the helm with the proper specialized experience will ascertain your success; that is, a proven leader having the track-record of successful ventures in actual transitions and the abilities to implement a smooth and viable succession process.
