SUCCESSION IN FAMILY BUSINESSES

Family businesses are characterized by high effectiveness and high complexity.

Comprised of individual parallel systems – family – company – shareholders – different laws exist, as well as prevailing different rituals and game rules. Each of these systems undergoes its own development and is at the same time, influenced by the experiences of the others.

The existence of the different rules of the game leads to ambiguous situations, which can be the source of considerable conflict for the company or the entrepreneurial family. Family businesses, on the other hand, can be more successful than non-family companies due to their high resources and special abilities.

We work with you to develop a suitable family strategy and strengthen you by consciously dealing with the complexity of the individual systems. We accompany you in successfully establishing an individual succession plan. We communicate with all family members, resolve conflicts, unravel role entanglements and strengthen competencies.

“And when I find him?”

“Kick him out!”
