succession planningSuccession planning is important for every business. It’s really common for business owners to believe that they don’t need to worry about a succession plan because they are not planning on exiting the business in the near future. But regardless of whether your business is big or small, new or well-established, you should have a succession plan in place.

Succession planning is not just about exiting a business, it is an important part of planning for unexpected events. Without one in place, a sudden illness, accident or natural disaster could very well have devastating consequences to your business and its ability to carry on operating.

And succession planning is something you should take the time to consider and put in place long before exiting the business. Preparing your business for selling, merging, a change in management or other exit strategy takes time and can often require expert advice on the right tactic and implementation.

Everyone has different goals for their business and their future. Some business owners envisage leaving the company completely, while others picture stepping back from day-to-day operations to move into a strategic overseeing role. Businesses with succession plans in place tend to achieve higher growth and have a greater survival rate than those without.
