Research finds that approximately 30 percent of all family-owned businesses survive into the second generation and only 12 percent survive into the third generation. It gets worse: only 3 percent operate at a fourth generation or beyond.

Successful leadership transition across generations is crucial for family business continuity. Family businesses that groom their next generation members from an early age are usually the ones that thrive through multiple generations. Capable, focused and decisive, next-generation members are the biggest asset for a family business. 

And that is exactly why XEDGlobal recommends the ‘Next Generation in Family Business’ programme at ISB that helps the next-generation members master the concepts and skills required to navigate through the complexities of a career in family businesses or organisations they choose to serve.


The biggest attraction of this course is Professor Kavil Ramachandran, one of the foremost authorities on family businesses, with over three decades of consulting, research and combined experience as an academic at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and the Indian School of Business.
He has done extensive research on family business, entrepreneurship and strategy, and has authored/edited seven books and published extensively in reputed Indian and overseas journals.
