Strategic Positioning: The Power of a Plan

Like so many processes in a family enterprise, strategic planning and strategic positioning come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, a quick Google search for both yields more than two hundred million links. Given the rapid pace of change – economic, technological and social – coupled with the diverse interests of family members, we suggest that these kinds of plans are best cast in Jell-O, rather than in cement. Cookie-cutter approaches aren’t useful in this area because one size definitely does not fit all.

Our Peers Recommend Peer Groups

Twenty-five years ago, we introduced New England to the concept of peer groups for members of family businesses. These included forums for members of the younger generation, the senior generation, an intergenerational forum and a women’s forum. We also had the pleasure of introducing this concept to colleges and universities around the globe.

Since that time, we’ve designed and facilitated hundreds of peer to peer meetings where enterprising family members can share their experiences, challenges and opportunities in a confidential professionally facilitated setting. Today, through The Peer Alliance, we facilitate several peer group for current and emerging leaders in family enterprises.

A recent article published by our colleagues from The Family Business Consulting Group, sites research from Drs. Caspersz and Thomas that indicates family business peer groups, “. . . provide members with an advisory board that assists them with the ongoing monitoring of the strategies they pursue to manage both family and business.” Click here for the full article.
