Transition Readiness Survey - 1/17 original edited

Introduction page

 
This instrument provides insights about your personal readiness for a significant business transition (scale/sale/succession).  It is based on the research of Dr. Allie Taylor and on her work with successful owners of privately held low to mid market businesses. 

A few points to note: 
  1. The assessment will take no more than 15 minutes
  2. There are no right or wrong answers  
  3. All questions are required
  4. The best answer is the one that is most authentically you
  5. The three most significant transitions a business and its owners face are scaling through growth barriers, engaging in a family succession, and selling all or part of their business.  This assessment is designed to provide insights that help owners at all three of those points of significant transition.  
  6. The goal is to enhance an owner's ability to control their transition by helping them leverage their psychology instead of having it used against them.  
  7. The choices you make today for how you scale and grow, engage in succession, or sell part of your business will impinge on or enhance your ultimate exit experience - even if that is years or decades away.  The earlier you begin to prepare yourself and your business for maximizing your personal satisfaction, financial outcomes, and legacy the more likely realizing your goals becomes.
