The Family Business Continuum
With the assistance of Grand Valley State University Family- Owned Business Institute, Family Business Alliance has established a Family Business Continuum to help family businesses understand the distinct axes of the family business life cycle and improve the opportunity for multi-generational success. These axes can be used to identify the current stage of the family business and charter a course of succession.
- Business Axis identifies the different stages a family business goes through from start up to decay or regeneration, across time.
- Ownership Axis identifies the key and controlling stakeholder(s).
- Leadership defines the experience and engagement of family leadership in the business.
Engage with the interactive model to classify your organization on the Family Business Continuum and access complimentary resources tailored to your organization.
