Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of Edinburgh (Business School), course: Method of Research, language: English, abstract: Business succession is always a challenging time for any business, but generational change is often a critical factor in the success or demise of family-run businesses. During period of generational change, the company offers both the incumbent and the successor a great challenge. This sensitive issue thus has to be conducted with careful planning because it is one of the most critical phases in the life cycle of a company, with a lot of chances and risks linked to the process. Further successions are also complicated, with half of established family run companies successfully reaching the second generation stage, but only around three or four percent successfully mastering the handover to a third generation. The causes of these succession issues are varied, and the challenges they create will be investigated in this piece. As such, further research is needed in this area, including the specific succession challenges faced in German Family Businesses, and strategies to overcome them. The primary research question is: What are the key generational challenges faced by German Family Businesses, and to what extent do they create risks of failure for these businesses?

Credibility–it's elemental to business leadership. You can't lead without it. For successors in family businesses, establishing credibility can be their greatest challenge. Growing up in the shadows of their predecessors' successes makes it difficult for successors in family businesses to establish themselves and use their gifts to lead. To lead storied family businesses, successors build credibility the hard way – just like their parents did: they earn it. However, they may face the more formidable challenge of winning over those loyal to another leader and another way of doing business. They also live with the pressure of leading something that has already been successful. In ground-breaking research, Andrew Keyt interviewed more than 25 successors of family business legends, including Massimo Ferragamo (Salvatore Ferragamo), John Burke (Trek), Bill Wrigley Jr. (The Wrigley Companies), Christie Hefner (Playboy Enterprises), John Tyson (Tyson Foods) and Dick Devos (Amway). The insights and analysis from the study form the basis for the key insights on how successors overcome the obstacles to credibility and build on what the legends created.

Korine reframes the question of succession in family and founder-lead businesses as an issue of entrepreneurial choice, concentrating on the challenge of succession for change as opposed to the traditional focus on succession for continuity. It is inevitable that when the leaders of family and founder-lead businesses look to pass on the mantle they naturally want to preserve and maintain the firm they have worked so hard for so long to build up. The shaping influence of family or founder, and the instinctive emotional desire for legacy easily sways succession towards continuity rather than the possibly radical development the business may need to meet new challenges. Succession for Change shows how competitive advantage has evolved over the last twenty-five years and examines the approaches being adopted by current business leaders, succession service providers and the next generation to address the change imperative in succession. Korine’s rigorous research and deeply practical approach shows that when change becomes the focus of succession, and developing entrepreneurial values takes precedence over preserving the status quo, succession planning can ensure that firms not only survive the departure of their founders but thrive long after they have gone. He offers a framework for implementing succession as transformation, and rethinking succession governance. The secret is enabling the next generation of leaders to stand on the shoulders of giants rather than be constantly doomed to stand in the shadow of giants.

The purpose of the study was to assess the strategic factors influencing management succession in African and Indian family businesses in Kenya. The study aimed at evaluating the strategic factors of family business succession, the succession challenges faced by African and Indian family businesses and determining the best strategies for effective succession planning. The study adopted a descriptive research method in gathering, analysing, interpreting, and presenting information. The descriptive research design helped in focusing at the strength of relationships between strategic factors and succession planning in African and Indian family businesses. The study employed the use of questionnaires to obtain relevant information from respondents. The study focused on 250 Indian and 350 African businesses within Nairobi Central Business District (CBD). Probability sampling technique was used to determine the sample size and collect data from the sample. The study adopted descriptive and inferential statistics in data analysis and presentation. The study found a number of highly significant strategic factors of family business succession; a) Having good governance structures (C.V. of 0.385) b) The successor?s full commitment and willingness to take control of the business (C.V. of 0.387) and c) Mutual respect within family members (C.V. of 0.391), which make the transition more effective. The study found a variety of challenges that affect succession in African and Indian family businesses. During the succession process, the study found that 84.0% of family businesses felt that the challenge of losing key customers or suppliers had a high significance with a C.V. of 0.382. Another highly significant challenge expressed by 81.6% of the respondents was the incumbent?s fear of losing a personal sense of attachment to the business which had a C.V. of 0.399. The study noted that 32.3% of African family businesses compared with 79.6% of Indian family businesses had discussed succession issues. Furthermore, 19.4% of African family businesses compared with 53.7% of Indian family businesses had a documented succession plan. Another significant observation from the study was that 31.2% of African family businesses compared with 49.2% of Indian family businesses felt that the successors had to demonstrate full commitment before they could take control of the business. Succession planning was noted to be one of the most complex and emotional issues family businesses face (significance level of r = 0.850** and p

This book examines the structure of political power amongst elites inside Saudi Arabia and how they might cope with the very serious challenge posed by succession. Presenting a new and refreshing theoretical approach that links elite integration with regime stability, the author shows that the kingdom's royal elite is far more integrated than it has generally been given credit for. Based on extensive field work inside Saudi Arabia, the book offers a detailed, up-to-date survey and assessment of all the key sectors of the elites in the country. The author examines how the succession process has been used in highly different circumstances - including deposition, assassination, and death by old age - and demonstrates how regime stability in Saudi Arabia rests on the royal family's ability to unite and to solve the challenge of succession. He offers a strong analysis of intra-ruling family mechanisms and dynamics in this notoriously private royal family, and addresses the question of whether, as the number of royals rapidly grows, the elite is able to remain integrated. Providing a rare insight into the issues facing the royal family and ruling elite in Saudi Arabia, this book will be of great interest to scholars and students of Middle Eastern politics, and Saudi Arabia in particular.

CEO succession represents a challenge for many companies. The leadership style of the new CEO impacts employees’ attitudes which, in turn, might be biased by the comparison employees make with their previous CEO. Cristina Pratelli investigates how and why leadership style (dis)similarity between the predecessor and the successor develops and affects successor leadership effectiveness. After a literature review and a theoretical model, she presents results from a quantitative study with SMEs in Switzerland as well as a qualitative multiple-case study with family businesses based in Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. This work offers new insights into CEO selection, leadership development, and the effectiveness of organizations.
