Seventy-percent of all family business transitions fail. What to successful families do to beat these odds?
We carried out a research project with over 100 successful family businesses, and through our study identified twelve critical success factors for families-in-business. The twelve factors fall into four major categories:
- Transforming Communication: Family Culture, Career Satisfaction, and Family Relationships
- Enhancing Leadership: Successor Development, Successor Competency, and Compensation Standards
- Creating Strategies: Business Structure, Non-Family Management and Business Strategy
- Building Responsible Ownership: Management Succession, Financial Planning and Tax Planning
This collection of short articles is based on the stories of the families featured in our full-length book - Love, Power and Money: Family Business Between Generations. We have organized the articles around the four major categories outlined above.
