Praise for VALUE MAPS
"Equivocator, Explorer, Experimenter, Exploiter,Extender--Chapter 12 might be well served as mandatory readingfor all subject matter experts! SPARC is not a valuation, per se,but rather a separate consulting engagement that might interest aclient--especially if that client is preparing for a sale orplanning an exit strategy. Miller has taken the good ideas fromfive disciplines and married them with value enhancement, creatingwhat could become a very good 'add-on' consulting engagement. NACVArecommends, and looks forward to, further dialogue related to thisnew approach. This book will open your eyes to newopportunities."
