Are you planning to sell your business?

Are you planning on selling your business?

Do you have plans to sell your business?  Doesn’t matter if the plan is to sell it now or sometime in the distant future. The main thing is that you have a plan to sell your business.

So the question I ask you is if you want to sell your business do you have written down processes or work instructions in place? If not, I ask why not? Whoever buys your business is going to want to know that:

  • You have reliable processes in place
  • That your processes are consistent
  • Your processes are written down
  • The employees are trained and competent  in what to do
  • Processes are measured where possible

So how do you fulfill your potential buyers need? Well, you don’t need a certified system like ISO9001, but you do need written Quality Management System in place. A written Quality Management System will:

  • Document how you do what you do
  • Agree roles and responsibilities
  • Create templates for everything
  • Record employees training and competence
  • Monitor and measure processes
