  • Challenges facing Family Managed Businesses

    "Only 3% of all family businesses worldwide remain in business for more than three generations"

    Family firms differ from other businesses as they combine family and business. This distinctive feature is an asset but may turn into a liability if not managed effectively.

    As family managed firms evolve they become complex. The transition from first generation (founder) to the second (Sibling partnership) and third (Cousin Confederation) generation presents a number of questions related to governance and sustainability. Research indicates that if a structured approach is not employed during each transition there is a high likelihood that the family business may disintegrate.

    "Most critical issues facing family businesses are family-based issues more than they are business-based issues"

  • Family Managed Business (FMB) Programs at the CEE

    The Family Managed Business Program is conceptualized to focus on the unique needs and challenges faced by family businesses. The program led by Ms. Aysha Anas Iftikhar, Family Business Expert & Program Director spearheads a number of advocacy initiatives and interventions to help family businesses professionalize, grow and transition successfully.

    The CEE-IBA has the distinction of introducing family managed business education in Pakistan. Since 2012, the Center for Executive Education has hosted workshops and seminars in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Faisalabad and Multan.

    Family business owners, employees working for family businesses, spouses and next generation family members have attended these workshops. Each of them without exception is looking forward to the future with great optimism.

    CEE has also hosted programs for leading communities and associations including Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI) Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI), Pakistan Gems & Jewelry Development Company (PGJDC), Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority (SMEDA), Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts (PAAPAM), Bohra & Khoja Community and Delhi Saudagran Youth Forum.
