For business owners who believe that the best transition plan starts with having a solid, well performing business, Manufacturing Works has created a program that identifies value-enhancing strategies that your company may want to undertake prior to transition.

We have brought together a group of local, independent subject matter experts from over 20 firms willing to share their expertise.


Start with the end in mind. During weeks 1 through 8, the group will meet twice per week including group coaching sessions. Our subject matter experts will help you chart your personal and business vision.

These accelerated, rapid-fire sessions are designed for those on a shortened timeline who need transition advice right now!

  • Family Structure and Counsel
  • Legal and Governance
  • Insurance and Risk
  • Business Valuation
  • Due Diligence
  • Preparation Process
  • Finance Options

Growth Sessions

Weeks 9 through 16 will focus on business growth strategies. The group will meet once per week with our subject matter experts plus group coaching sessions. Projects will be prioritized for your business so implementation can begin.

  • Digital Marketing
  • Sales and Pricing
  • Technology
  • Talent and Culture
  • Leadership Development
  • Inventory and Project Selection
  • Project Management

Implementation Phase

In addition to learning from the experts, you will become part of a cohort of like-minded business owners brought together to share insights by meeting monthly for the balance of the one-year program.

The journey doesn't end here. We can continually help you prioritize for your business to ensure your team is spending time, money, and attention in the right areas.

Program participants will also have access and introductions to financial capital resources.
