Family Business contributes 60 to 70 percent of GDP of most developed & developing countries. India is no exception. Most of the Business families face unique management challenges because of the differences in the attitude & aspirations of family members.

As new generations join the family business, it is an enormous challenge to keep the family & business together. Some sacrifice the business to keep the families together, while others sacrifice the family to keep the business.

It has been observed that:

  • Just 13 percent of the Family business survive till third generation & only 4 percent go beyond third generation
  • One third of business families disintegrate because of generational conflict. However, the close-knit structure of families, which fosters teamwork combined with respect to family values and family elders, has been the key to success of many family businesses.
