The Value Builder System™

Increasing the value of your business 

To help you find ways to increase the value in your business, Osborne principals use the Value Builder System™ to assess eight key drivers of value from a purchaser perspective. We recommend a review or development of a strategic plan to enhance the overall value of your business. Then we can guide you through appropriate steps that will not only make your organization more attractive to potential purchasers, but perhaps more importantly, help you operate more effectively while adding new value to the business.

Our certified Value Builder experts will introduce you to the system, calculate your result, and walk you through the key drivers that when addressed through the strategic planning process will increase value. 

When you’re thinking about selling your business, the key question is not what you think it’s worth but knowing how others will value your business and what they are willing to pay.

How do you know when it’s time to exit with a maximum return? As a business owner, you need to carefully navigate the various minefields involved. A trusted advisor can guide you through and take away the stress.

The Osborne Group have licensed partners with Value Builder System™. Value Builder has worked with over 60,000 business owners during the last eight years to understand what it takes to have a successful exit. It boils down to two key questions:

  1. Is your business ready to sell?
  2. Are you personally ready to exit?

The Value Builder assessment tool provides answers to these questions and prepares you for a deeper conversation about your business’ value. Use the links below to get started, and we’ll be in touch.

Value Builder Score™ looks at how valuable your business is through a purchaser’s perspective. Analysis of scores versus offers shows that those businesses that score over 80 get offers that are 70% higher than average. 

Equally important is your personal readiness to exit score (PREScore™). Value Builder research indicates that 75% of business owners have some level of owners regret one year after the sale. PREScore™ determines the at-risk areas and provides personalized recommendations for improvement, helping owners create a personal plan that ensures a happy and lucrative exit.


Each week, the Value Builder newsletter and podcast features an in-depth interview with a business owner who has sold their business. Listen as they discuss the steps taken to increase their sales multiple and how these steps were implemented to increase the value of their business.
