Family business next generation survey 2018
We are inviting the next generation leaders of Irish family businesses to share their opinions on how they expect to take their company forward in a rapidly-changing business landscape full of uncertainty, challenges and new opportunities.
The Deloitte Family Business Centre is conducting this piece of research under the topic of ‘Family Business and Business Ecosystems’.
Family businesses are an important part of the global economy. As a firm, Deloitte has the privilege of working with and advising many family business clients, and we are aware that some aspects of their business environment and operations – something that we call their ‘ecosystem’ – are quite unique, and different from those of other companies. The aim of our research is to gather views of the next generation of family business leaders, and share the richness of their knowledge and experiences in a report.
Driven largely by digital technology and greater connectivity, new ways of creating value are being developed in all areas of business, in the form of networks, collaboration and interdependence – which we define as a business ecosystem. The opportunities for innovation from business ecosystems exceed those available to individual organizations operating independently, and are transforming the business landscape.
The survey seeks to discover how the next generation of leaders of family businesses perceives business ecosystems and position their company within it, and how they expect to take their company forward in a rapidly-changing business landscape full of uncertainty, challenges and new opportunities. We hope to build an overview of some of the most interesting opinions, experiences and lessons learned.
If you are a Next Generation leader of a family business (family member of second generation or later), your input to our online survey would be very valuable, and we would be most grateful for your support.
This survey consists of up to 28 short questions. Answers will not be attributed to the respondent individually in any way, and only aggregate responses will be reported. Survey closes on Wednesday 28th February.
