First, a peek under the hood. What is business value, exactly?

Why should you care?
Business value, simply, in plain English
Let’s bust some jargon
Lighten up, it’s not an exact science

Then, we rip off that hood from its hinges Let’s value a business, right now!

Laying out the tools
Fire up your laptop, and away we go
From profit to real profit
From real profit to cash
From cash tomorrow to value today
Plus some extra worldly possessions
And voila! We have a value
Okay, now what?
