Importance of Family Managed Business Program
In most economies, family businesses account for two thirds of businesses with an estimated 70 to 90% contribution to Global GDP (Family First Institute). 33% of the Fortune Global 500 are linked to family managed businesses (Deloitt¬e). Family businesses create 50 to 80% jobs worldwide. With contributions to national income, growth and employment, family businesses truly serve as the bedrock of any economy. In addition, family businesses the world over have a significant share in philanthropic efforts.
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 continuity. Research indicates if a structured approach is not employed during each transition there is a high likelihood that the family business may not achieve its full potential and succumb to competition as a result of infighting.
"Most critical issues facing family businesses are family based issues more than they are business based issues"
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.

According to research by the Family First Institute, only 12% of family businesses survive the course of three generations. In our experience, the most frequent requests for assistance fall in the following non-exhaustive list of categories:
In order for family managed businesses to effectively manage generational transition and complexity, a good governance structure needs to be in place. Good governance helps eliminate differing visions and objectives among family members and ensures cohesiveness. Absence of good governance mechanisms such as the 'family constitution' often results in crisis.
The IBA's FMB Team and the family business (or client of IBA) work in partnership to understand the needs and develop the best possible solution. The FMB Team are specialists who have served extensively as FMB Mentors and who publish on the subject as well. Their successful track record with FMBs is a proof of their resourcefulness and wisdom to handle complexities and difficult relationships that are prevalent in FMBs.
The Center for Executive Education (CEE) has entered into a partnership with the Asian Institute of Family Managed Business (AIFMB), a 'not for profit' center working to promote the growth of Family Business Entrepreneurship. The center works with leading faculty and family businesses within the region to promote family business education.
