Assoc Prof Tan, who is also Steering Committee Chair of the SMU Business Families Institute, stressed that successor planning for SMEs is very important. She cited a study done by SMU postgraduates in business management – which revealed that some Chinese family businesses begin grooming their successors at a very young age – and pointed out that this is important for a smooth succession planning process.
