Course Overview

Family-owned businesses, big and small, account for over 80% of businesses in India and are a significant contributor to the country’s GDP. Management of family-owned businesses also pose a unique set of legacy challenges that include vision, sustainability, continuity, succession, governance, etc. In today’s rapidly evolving dynamic business environment, it is essential for owners, inheritors, successors, scions and even top management of family-owned businesses to have a nuanced view of global best practices in managing, sustaining and growing such businesses. 

For those who are running a family business, sticking to their traditional way of doing things is important. But sticking to traditions sometimes comes with a heavy price of slow growth and many missed opportunities. To become more dynamic, and to contribute more to the economy, it is important for family managed businesses and new business ventures to adopt professional ways of doing business that make them thrive in today’s dynamic environment.

The business environment in India is rapidly changing. It is far more dynamic today than ever before. The family-managed businesses must adapt to the professional way of managing their businesses to remain afloat in today’s dynamic environment. Therefore, this programme is developed to educate and enable the owners/top-management of the family businesses in India to understand and learn how to tackle the challenges they face and continue to contribute to the national economy more significantly.

The programme will enable them to explore how to scan the environment and identify the opportunities available to grow in the same field or in new vistas. It will also expose them to the theory related to the functional aspects of the business, developing strategies and the importance of professional management.

India ranks third in terms of the number of family-managed businesses with 111 companies having a total market capitalisation of $839 billion. ‘Credit Suisse Family 1000 in 2018’ report by CSRI
