The power of mentoring — Unite business plan with succession plan
Abstract: The owners of many companies launch their enterprises with a business plan — a written document outlining the company’s strategic objectives and practical means of accomplishing them. Likewise, many owners leave their businesses via a succession plan, a written document outlining how the company’s ownership should transition. Often, however, these two documents never cross paths, much less join toward a common goal. This article shows how effective mentoring can unite a succession plan with a business plan to great effect.
