Valuation Techniques - Introduction to Valuation - New!

Changes in the structure of businesses today

The balance sheets of world leading companies have witnessed significant shifts in the proportion of tangible and intangible assets. The traditional value chain that focused on efficiency of the typical industry processes and activities in order to supply existing products or services to customers has been replaced by adaptive, flexible and innovative value chains that serve future customer needs. The industry operational standards are being replaced by operations that follow specific company strategies to ensure competitive advantage and creation of future market opportunities. 

How this relates to valuation?

Today's successful companies have mastered the management of the value chain, which requires clarity and accuracy of a value system. To ensure healthy and thriving business, managers and professionals aspire to base their decisions on transparent and reliable information. With this change of the structure of a business, a main question arises: Is traditional valuation practice based on universally applied technical valuation methods capable of delivering reliable valuation in the relevant business context?

In fact, today's valuation requires profound consideration of the dynamic business environment, which is so often ignored by many valuation professionals. As a result, such valuations deliver values based on profoundly technical and standardized valuations that are irrelevant for the specific business context. The subject of valuation is likewise often presented from a technical point of view, which is the reason why many managers believe that valuation is an overly complex subject. However, today's valuation is rather intuitive and requires logical approach and understanding and consideration of the business environment.

How do I learn to perform a reliable valuation in the relevant business context?

e-Bright believes managers and professionals can easily develop an understanding of the underlying principles of the valuation process that will enable them to perform and understand valuation. Without a need to read extensive valuation books and study overly complicated valuation techniques, our professionals have developed an essential model to teach you an intuitive and logical valuation approach. e-Bright developed a concise, yet profound course structure that will allow you to gain a holistic understanding of the subject and will prepare you to perform reliable valuations in the relevant business context. The structure of the valuation course will follow 4 steps of a valuation process:

  1. Defining stakeholder perspectives on value and overall valuation
  2. Defining purposes of valuation and their relevance to the valuation process
  3. Suitability of specific valuation techniques
  4. Objects: references used by professionals, variables that must be considered, quantifications of the value and actual step-by step valuations

Good valuations consist of constant reflection on reasonableness of decisions made throughout the valuation process. This process is rather a cycle and requires flexibility in constant adjustments until the final value truly reflects the business context. Therefore, the course contains intuitive examples, developed to help you understand how valuation principles work in practice. At the end of the Introduction to Valuation course, you can continue with a course on valuation of one of the four main asset groups:
