Owner Operated VS Ace Framework

Most Owner-Operated businesses don’t have the capacity to grow.

Owner-Operated Business: A business where one individual handles most, if not all, facets of running the business.

Owners typically wear many hats, which limits their growth capacity because they’re already maximizing their time managing employees and customers.

This makes it hard to grow or sell the business, causing owners to feel stuck and overwhelmed in their business.

ACE Framework businesses have a greater capacity to handle growth.

ACE Framework Business: A business in which the operations of the company are handled by a team of people with well-defined roles and goals.

When there’s a leader for every department in the business, there are more resources available to plan, prioritize, and implement processes.

This is how you can create efficiencies to increase capacity for more customers or bigger contracts, often without any new hires.

Streamline & Scale Your Business with Our Proven ACE Framework

Benefits Of Becoming An ACE Framework Business:

Owner-Operated Businesses Hinder Business Growth.

The operations behind every company can be organized into only three categories.

1. Resources:

First, there are resources.

Resources are the raw materials and manpower in your business.  Your staff, equipment, inventory, etc.

One way to drive growth is to increase your resources; hire more people, or buy more equipment.   This is often the default growth method for small businesses without management teams.

However; defaulting to growth in this manner will eventually erode profit margins and increase the stress on the company.  And if there's a downturn, suddenly you have larger overhead to support! 

2. Processes:

Secondly, you have processes.

Processes are the series of steps you do to transform your resources into a more refined product.  In manufacturing, this could be turning a raw material like wood into a cabinet.

In service, this is training your workforce on a process required to get a job done and get paid, as well as processes required to keep the lights on, like finances and employee management.

The more organized and streamlined these processes are, the more inefficiencies and waste can be reduced while increasing consistency, quality, and resource allocation. Efficient processes allow you to get more out of the same resources.

Most owners of small businesses, without management in place, do not have the time to focus on growth through the development and training of processes.

3. Priorities:

Finally, you have priorities.

Priorities define what your company says “yes” to and what it says “no” to, steering the company toward its objectives without overwhelming its resources.

The growth of a business is influenced by the number of priorities it can focus on each year.

However, most busy owners only have time for one priority, so they spend their time juggling resources to keep customers and employees happy. In a fully ACE Framework led business, the ownership should really focus primarily on the priorities, while the management team focuses on processes. 

Only when margins are well above the industry average should you then turn to focus on increasing resources.

In a ACE Framework Business, the owner gets to steer the ship while the leadership team oversees day-to-day operations.

The secret to streamlining, scaling, and even selling your business without disrupting culture or losing employees is by putting them in charge.

The ACE Framework

After acquiring 30 owner-operated businesses over the last 8 years, we’ve learned how to structure a management-run business that can run and grow without you.

It is a change management model that was designed to help owners level up their businesses by delegating responsibilities to their teams.

We apply this ACE Framework playbook to every business we acquire by developing key employees into members of a Balanced Leadership Team:

Operations

Manager

People and Culture

Manager

Finance and Administration

Manager

Sales and
Marketing

Manager

By delegating the owner’s responsibilities to these four leadership roles, the business can accomplish more with the same resources.

This creates four different sets of priorities to help the business grow, all working together to maximize the processes and resources to achieve their goals.

This is how a management-run business can carry on without you, making them much more valuable to a buyer when you’re ready to sell.

Who Is This For?

ACE Framework is designed for Owner-Operators who:

 

Want to sell soon for more than their business is currently valued.

  • Don’t have a manager for every 7-10 employees
  • Don’t have a succession plan
  • Wear more than one hat
  • Hit a growth ceiling
  • Feel stuck

How Does It Work?

We work with your existing team of employees to help you build a ACE Framework led enterprise so you can spend more time doing what you want.

Once your leadership team is running strong without you, your business valuation goes up and your employee’s jobs are protected.

How Much Does It Cost?

 

The investment starts at $15k, which can be financed if needed.

This will also cost you plenty of time and effort to become a fully ACE Framework led business, but those who are willing to do it can typically sell their business more easily and for a higher multiple ($1MM – $2MM more is possible).
