Whenever there is generation shift in the family business, chances are 60% not to survive in the same way in future. Today family businesses are setting a unique model in front of corporate governance to run the business. Emami group, Dalmias etc – they all have created a success story. Emami group, two generations from two families. It is because of mentors of both the families that business is running smoothly.
