The Legacy Kansas city team uses the CoreValue® system--the same approach that has been used to help over 5,300 companies (generated over $4.2 billion in increased value) and is the only operational approach born at MIT, accepted by NACVA, adopted by over 50% of NIST economic offices, promoted to the American City Business Journals readership of 13MM and PROVEN to produce excellent results and get you to the next level—quickly and affordably.

What you get when you work with Legacy:

  1. BEST Methodology
  2. BEST Analysis
  3. BEST Results
  4. ROI-based

Let’s review each of these four reasons in detail:

  1. BEST Methodology - one of the industry’s BEST and PROVEN methodologies—from CoreValue® (developed at MIT) to uncover the core problems or inefficiencies your business is facing–and show you what they are worth if you fix them.

Measures - 18 Value Drivers. Evaluates the 18 critical drivers (operations, sales & marketing, brand, senior management, recurring revenue, etc.) that reveal the strength or holes within your current business.     

Peer Comparisons - Uses industry databases with real numbers from actual sold businesses within your industry to calculate and predict your company’s value (within 5-10% of the accuracy of a full valuation), shows what it “could” be worth, and how to get there.

Standardized Holistic Process - We analyze the totality of your company’s operational areas and       leverage best practices from assessment through execution to maximize results.

  1. BEST Analysis - We help you identify the RIGHT areas to work on first so you will realize the most value within your company.

Quick & Affordable - The free up-front initial assessment only takes about 15 minutes and you       get a valuable, detailed report with actionable steps, just for participating. The 2nd tier assessment (Deep Dive Analysis) is usually conducted as part of the formal engagement, but it still only takes the business owner 60-90 minutes to complete and is incredibly thorough.

Deep Dive Analysis - This analysis typically includes a value gap analysis, shows the increase in   value over time for completed tasks, includes a ‘What If?’ scenario to test changes, benchmarking, CoreValue rating, plus an analytics report, KPIs and more. This analysis includes a session with your advisor to discuss the results and plan your next steps.

  1. BEST Results - You get a plan of action that includes detailed tasks—ready to execute.

Plus, you get help from a Legacy business consultant to get it done right—and grow your company to the next level. Resulting in increased profits and business value.

Most Detailed Reports - In addition to calculating your potential business value and rating.  Your operations, your report benchmarks you against your best performing peers. You will clearly see the risks to your company, how to fix them, and what your company could be worth after implementation.

Value Gap - Determines what your business would sell for today, and what it COULD be worth-- based on market data showing what the best run businesses could actually sell for. Then includes the detailed steps to improve your business to get the highest value.

Workbook - Includes a workbook of specific tasks to increase company strength and value; and tracks the increased value you create over time. The dynamic, actionable plan guides you through implementing best practices, strengthening operations and building value.

  1. ROI-based - What Can You Expect?

This process has increased value by over $4.2 billion for the companies that have used it –the   average company has grown by 27%.

The assessment shows the holes in your operations--we do not even engage unless we can    SHOW you a greater return than the cost.

We generate a complete list of actionable recommendations – each item calculates an associated ROI. Then we pick the area with the greatest potential ROI and get started.

On average, you should get a 10x return for your dollars spent.

There is “NO CHARGE” for the initial assessment. You get a valuable, actionable Executive Report–in minutes. It shows what you are worth, what you can be worth, and how to get there--for free. If we see a good fit and we can prove value, then our job is to guide you through the steps and help you get your return quicker. The focus of the initial assessment is on operations, not financials, with lots of client interaction: clients like it! The actionable plan helps you invest in the process, seeing immediate progress, tangible milestones and the ROI for the work we do.
