Succession Planning

Succession Planning:

Is Your Business Prepared to Move On?

As an owner, major changes to your business can be a scary, daunting task. From changing  company structure to completely handing off  ownership–it’s one of the most important decisions of your life. It’s your biggest investment.  You shouldn’t have to face these challenges alone. At Operations Laboratory, you will work with our execution consultants and a group of like-minded business owners to prepare a plan that works.

Who is succession planning for?

Succession planning is the perfect step for any owner wanting to sell a business or install new leaders at the top. For example, you may want to move beyond your company’s day-to-day operations, pass it to the next generation in your family, or even sell it. All three  of these require detailed planning to succeed.
