Business Valuation Resource Panel

The Business Valuation Resource Panel (BVRP) is a rotating panel of leading business valuation experts, professionals and academics appointed to provide input, recommendations and updates from the business valuation discipline to The Appraisal Foundation's Boards. 

The BVRP was established by The Appraisal Foundation as part of its continuing efforts to preserve and improve the public trust in business valuations and appraisals. The BVRP makes resources from The Appraisal Foundation available to the business valuation discipline and seeks to maintain and strengthen the interaction between The Appraisal Foundation and members of the business valuation discipline. 

Activities of the BVRP include maintaining and developing  Business Valuation Advisories and Business Valuation Briefs, interacting with the Appraisal Issues Task Force, and other special projects.

The Art of Valuation 

Business appraisal is as much an art as it is a science. This collection of essays by 29 top experts from overlapping disciplines uses storytelling to capture a flavor of the romance, the intrigue, the art and heart of business appraisal and its many unique practitioners. Beginning with a history of the profession, The Art of Valuation reveals the nuances, tips and tactics, and ways of thinking about business appraisal that make the difference between good and great work. It seeks to encourage practitioners of all levels to enlarge their focus from the technical issues and mechanics of analyses and spreadsheet modeling to the essence of the big-picture thinking that produces a powerful, effective, credible work product.

Whether readers are seasoned professionals, firm staff, graduate students, or corporate project managers, this tribute to the irreplaceable role of human intellect, judgment, experience, and integrity in appraisal (and business) problem-solving and strategy will be an inspiration toward further excellence and creativity in whatever they do.
