AIM partners with Prof. John Davis of MIT’s Sloan School of Management for world class Family Business Program
Family-owned enterprises dominate the Philippine business landscape. Foremost among the challenges they face is long-term survival and succession to the next generation.
To address this critical issue, the Cambridge Institute of Family Enterprise, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in partnership with the Asian Institute of Management, presents “Top Management Program: Multigenerational Family Business” on March 23-24, 2020 at the Ballroom 1 of the Fairmont Hotel in Makati City.
This two-day program will be led by world-renowned Professor John Davis of the MIT Sloan School of Management, who is also Chairman and Founder of the Cambridge Family Enterprise Group. Families will learn strategies to sustain a competitive business, as well as a united family and ownership structure for the next generation. Topics include Multigenerational Success Factors; Stages of Evolution of Family Businesses; Governance; Succession Planning; Development of the Next Generation; Preparation for becoming a Shareholder; and other related subjects. This program combines classroom discussions, interactive lectures, case discussions, and international examples.
In particular, the program will:
- Offer families pragmatic tools and leading practices to explore the rewards, challenges, goals, and strategies for the long-term survival of their family business.
- Provide a safe forum, a shared language, and useful frameworks for senior generation and next generation family members to discuss their future goals and plans for their business, ownership, wealth, and family.
- Help family members who are contemplating their career path to understand where they may fit in the family enterprise and how to develop themselves for future roles in governance, ownership, or management.
- Offer the unique opportunity to exchange experiences and strategies with like-minded families facing similar situations.
On an optional third day on March 25, participating families may choose to have a bonus opportunity for private meetings and receive customized guidance contingent on each family’s unique situation. This will be held at the Asian Institute of Management campus.
Families are advised to attend in groups, ideally with both the senior and next generation members. Program cost is US$6,000 for a family of four, and US$1,000 for each additional member.
