Technical Note: The Family Constitution

Abstract

This note introduces the importance to family businesses of drafting a family constitution to maintain success and continuity of governance of the family's enterprises. The process of family members/owners being involved in making the draft provides the most value for the enterprise, more so than the content of the finished product.
