About the Program
This intermediate program will describe the characteristics of a family business, the goals of the founding family member, and the various strategies for passing the business down to the next generation or disposing of it outside the family, in some cases with examples.  It will also discuss the business succession planning process and highlight difficult issues that can arise and ways to avoid or minimize problems.
