BASICS & KEY CHALLENGES Module one will equip you with all the essential skills and tools you need to make your family business unique and resilient. You will explore the main challenges to success in the industry and learn how to overcome these using efficient and effective family decision-making processes. Expect to master the balance between organic growth and liquidity control, enabling you to lay the foundations for a productive and prosperous family business.

INSPIRATIONAL ON-SITE EXPERIENCE Throughout the second module, you will learn how to understand, analyze and assess various business models in order to evaluate which one is best for your organization. Optimize your competitive advantage as you fine-tune your ability to innovate, identify and implement the most effective strategies for your business. Visits to family-owned businesses will enable you to observe the application of these skills in the real world, bringing together all of the knowledge you have acquired so far.

BUILDING AND RETAINING GROWTH The third module focuses on getting to grips with the instruments needed to grow your company from within. You will explore how to financially support and sustain business growth, particularly through private equity and venture capital. You will also learn how to organize and professionalize your management team, attract the best talent and create an effective reward system. Family talks will round this module up, helping you and your family to produce a business roadmap for a successful future.

YOUR VALUES, YOUR VISION The final module of the program empowers you to apply what you have learnt throughout the course to the individual needs and objectives of your family business. You will revise the ethical, social and legal codes underlying business management, and investigate how to create sustainable value for shareholders and stakeholders. Communication is key to success, and you will be taught how to communicate and defend your business decisions, both internally and externally.
