They have dynamic and overlapping subsystems: Business, Ownership and Family. Continuity requires planning and action across all three over time.
A commitment to continuity requires a clear and energizing vision for future ownership along with the structures, policies and processes, and leadership to achieve it. These activities are typically governed by a network of Boards and committees that ensure the shared vision of the owners is aligned with business strategy and family values. These values often include important messages to family owners about stewarding wealth responsibly, and opportunities to achieve important social change and leave a family legacy via Family Philanthropy.
