At the end of November I participated on a panel at the Business Transitions Forum related to Due Diligence. The audience was a mixture of business owners and advisors who work with business owners. The panel titled, "The Due Diligence Process & Why Sellers Should Care", gave the audience a reality check into the due diligence process. My self-proclaimed role on the panel was to explain the difference between Pre-Due Diligence and Due Diligence and why it is important. This important first step for business owners enables them to understand what needs attention in their business and how to improve results so they can maximize the value of their business when they decide to sell.
