CVGA Course Description

Corporate Value Metrics is pleased to introduce the most comprehensive training and credentialing program dedicated to preparing professionals to become leaders in providing value growth services – the fastest-growing service segment of the private middle-market today.

“It’s amazing how many key takeaways there were in helping how to rethink the way to conduct your business.” – Brent Johnstone, Founder, Managing Partner, Quarry Capital and Granite Analytics

Most private middle-market companies have an opportunity to double their values over a three- to five-year period by following a disciplined, methodical, approach to improving the quality of their entire enterprises.

The CVGA program focuses on the fundamental best practices of any business across the eight primary functional categories that drive the creation of business value and how advisors can become the “Engagement Quarterback” to their clients. Various subject matter experts present modules on each of the eight primary categories, along with special modules on corporate finance, strategic planning, business development, and engagement management. A live case study ties the program together and an online exam completes it.

CVGA Learning Objectives

After completing the CVGA program, you will be able to:

  • Identify the fundamental best practices of any company across the eight primary functional categories that every company needs to have fully-developed and in balance with each other to achieve peak performance and maximum value;
  • Diagnose a company’s strengths and weaknesses across the eight categories and establish its overall quality and risk profiles;
  • Calculate a company’s cost of capital utilizing its quality and risk profiles and use it to determine the company’s intrinsic value;
  • Prescribe a program of continuous improvement for a company and estimate the impact on the company’s intrinsic value for any contemplated improvement initiative;
