The value of continuity

What do families look for when facing the delicate theme of continuity?

Continuity among generations is often considered a complicated “problem”. In reality, it is a logical necessity in all organisations, including businesses and families, which should not be underestimated and must be well planned in a timely manner and carefully managed, even by the most prosperous and well-established companies and families. Continuity among generations must be faced with appropriate tools to handle the variables at stake, so as to manage the entrepreneurial succession like a phase in the company’s development, not only from an income point of view, but also in terms of expansion of the organisation’s expertise, new alliances to drive product innovation, diversification of channels and markets, relaunching and revitalising short and long-term strategies. From the family point of view, however, generational continuity must ensure that a family’s ethical and moral values endure over time, allowing family members to develop their own talents in harmony and shared affinity.

Deloitte can assist with continuity through:

  • Support in identifying the family’s mission and values.
  • Next-generation academies dedicated to tutoring the new generations.
  • Reviewing the company structure and defining possible future organisational scenarios.
  • Assisting generational transition planning.

  • Analysing capital, financial position and operating results.
  • Supporting the estate in defining roles.
  • Direct involvement in the reorganisation and protection of family assets.
  • Exploring the best tax solutions to preserve company worth.

Finance for growth

Take on challenges, exploit opportunities

What do companies expect from the global economic recovery?

A growing global economy, access to credit facilitated by surplus liquidity and a dynamic financial market looking for outstanding companies in which to invest: these are all potential opportunities to be exploited by companies wishing to harness external resources to finance growth and aggregation projects. Advisors can offer many answers, but they must always be accompanied by an integrated approach that facilitates dialogue with financial operators, access to borrowed capital and appropriate assessment of alternative options for raising new capital, such as pooling with strategic and financial partners, or a greater openness to financial markets. This must all be achieved through efficient measurement of cash flow and revenue performance using reliable financial information.

Innovation for corporate support

The competitive revolution

What do companies need to manage socio-economic transformations and the advent of new technologies?

It is not easy for companies to find their way in a business environment in constant rapid change: now more than ever, companies must be highly adaptable. Socio-economic transformations and the advent of disruptive technologies are just some of the factors that affect new and old markets, leading new players and products to emerge, not to mention the lowering of barriers to entry and the loss of positions of dominance. The ability to respond effectively to the changing environment is an essential trait whose innovative nature is an enabling factor for companies wanting to remain competitive.

Today, business is a matter of agility, innovation, digitalisation. All our management principles are being challenged. In this context, companies must challenge themselves through actions designed to promote a corporate culture that encourages employees to be innovative and develops the ability to carefully choose investments in product or process, with tools applied to intercept and seize the drivers of change at the right moment.
