Business model and family business succession

July 25th, 2014

work session with Luis Cisneros (hec) on business models, family business and succession

Based on the BM canvas, the idea should be to create a tool, such as a new canvas or framework, for helping family businesses to analyse their existing business model at the succession time and to co-design a new one that the successor could execute to survive or growth. The use of BM layers could be adopted to consider the three critical areas of a family business: business, family and ownership/governance, illustrated by the Three Circle Family Business System Model, proposed by Tagiuri and Davis (1982).
