Succession Planning

An Introduction to Succession Planning

Succession planning should be at the top of the list for every business owner and leader. No matter what size of business you run, your aim will be to ensure your company is left in the hands of capable people after you leave. It’s also important to protect your shareholders, should the worst happen, and you unexpectedly lose a key person in your business. 

Why Succession Planning?

Without a plan for your succession, you may be putting your business and people at risk. Although you cannot prevent disasters from occurring, you can put measures in place to ensure business continuity. Whether you’re considering an exit strategy or business sale, there are a few steps you can take to ensure the future sustainability of your business. 

If you own a family business, you may be looking to pass on your legacy to your loved ones. You may have already started this process by training or mentoring future leaders to follow in your footsteps. Therefore, you’ll want to ensure all your hard work and efforts pay off after you step away from the business or retire.
