[Quiz] How Involved is Your Family in the Business?


When you undergo the family diagnosis, you are able to find out where your family business is in the family cycle. By understanding where your family enterprise stands, you cannot only identify the challenges of today and tomorrow, but also help the family chart its path to greater success.

You have successfully diagnosed your family business in the family cycle. Where are you in the family cycle?

Normally, the size of the family that owns the business increases over generations. A sole owner founds the business, the siblings continue and the cousins develop it further to a family dynasty, if they do not fail (Buddenbrook-Syndrome). With the number of family owners, complexity and diversity increases, however emotional attachment decreases and the relevance of dividends becomes more important.
