Secure Your Legacy

Succession Planning is important because at the heart of the Talent Management process is identifying key roles and mapping out ways to ensure the organization has the right people with the right skills, capabilities, and experiences, in the right place at the right time.

Succession planning is not just exclusive to building a “deep bench” of replacement talent to step in when people retire, or leave.

Succession Planning is also a necessity in properly managing the tax and ownership ramifications of the company future. If being sold, or turned over to family members, the preparation required for this type of transition can take years to implement, and could become very costly tax wise, if not properly planned.

"When we considered bringing on Smart Business Doctor for advice, I was not quite sure that we could improve the bottom line at all. I was very worried about employee morale. I did not want to let any employees go or compromise are good status and great reputation. The management quickly saw issues from a different point of view. We would have never thought of these remedies. We are now able to continue as before, but with a much better profit margin."

Our experts, look at every aspect of succession planning to provide a thorough set of options that minimize high, unanticipated costs to keep more money in your pocket.

Many business owners only prepare for succession in the event of death and sometimes retirement, however, fail to plan in the event of incapacitation that could cripple a business because provisions are not made in advance to handle such tragedy.

We believe Succession Planning is just as integral to solid business planning as Sales and Profits are to daily operations.
