We’re pleased to begin our third year publishing the Business of Valuation.  As a professional in the BV industry, you have access to a range of publications designed to help you deal with the financial and technical elements of your practice.  No one else, though, is bringing you the perspective that we can about … well … the business of valuation.

In this issue, Mike Crain, Chair of the AICPA BV Committee, looks into his crystal ball about the future of BV. Tim Brennan writes about the parallels between sport and business when it comes to evaluating your staff. In other articles, we take a closer look at volunteerism in the BV community, and what some practitioners say about the benefit of hindsight. Finally, in the first in a series of articles, we examine the recently revised BV curriculum offered by ASA.

As always, we invite your comments. If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered, let us know.
