BPM Partner Edward Webb discusses exit planning and “exit doing” in his recent article. 

In his article for Accounting Today, BPM Partner Edward Webb takes a look at the importance of exit planning for business owners and the struggle of actually exiting the business. The struggle comes from, as Edward puts it, “the hard details of exiting a business.” He writes, “The skills and talents that sparked business ownership in the first place are rarely the skills necessary to successfully exit a business.” 

To overcome this challenge, Edward discusses the concept of what he calls “exit doing,” a service designed to help clients take the next step toward leaving their business. “’Exit doing’ is more than providing regular professional services,” explains Edward. It integrates the talents, skills and experience of a service professional with sensitivity to inspire clients’ confidence and trust.
