Developing the Next Generation of Managers

“The final test of greatness in a CEO is how well he chooses a successor and whether he can step aside and let the successor run the company.”

Peter Drucker

turning over control
Turning Over Control
  • Start early to learn each potential successor’s capacity
  • Successor may be in-law, grandchild, or neighbor
  • Ask yourself, “can I live with their decision”
  • Give control over different sectors of the business so the next generation can master each one independently.
  • Rome was not built in a day – your successor’s transition into control should be gradual (but not so gradual that they lose interest)
addressing power issues
Addressing Power Issues
  • Who controls decision making
  • Decision making control should be secondary to the quality of the decisions
  • Decision making under alternative scenarios
assuring fair compensation
Assuring Fair Compensation
  • Address compensation for labor, management and capital contributions
    • Especially younger generation members with little or no decision making power
valuing ownership interest
Valuing Ownership Interest
  • Ownership interest on a fair and equitable basis
  • Review process for establishing ownership interest
protecting minority owners
Protecting Minority Owners
  • Minority owners should be protected from the harshness of majority rule
encouraging phased retirement
Encouraging Phased Retirement
  • Encourage older individuals to retire
    • Level of compensation
    • Access to retirement benefits
    • Reduced-responsibility positions on the management team
anticipating disruptions
Anticipating Disruptions
  • The 5 D’s review
    • Death, Disability, Disaster, Divorce, Disagreement

  • More two-generation family business arrangements fail because of poor family relations than any other reason
