The graphic arts industry includes a significant number of companies that are family owned. The multi-generational family as an organizing principle for business provides many unique advantages for those who participate. The opportunity for creativity and exercising judgement, as well as personal challenge and growth is often far greater in one's own business. There is also the satisfaction of seeing the close relationship between effort and reward.
For the second generation and beyond, the family business offers opportunities for grater authority at a younger age than can be experienced in regular employment. Families who work together spend more time together and report a closeness that exceeds what they would otherwise experience. But family businesses also offer special difficulties. Family relationships can be strained and there can be conflict. The boundaries between family and work can be blurred. The challenges faced in the marketplace by each generation are different, so intergenerational conflict that is normal between parent and child can be magnified in a business environment. In addition, family businesses require a different kind of management and governance than other forms of ownership.
How to Succeed in a Family-Run Printing Business leads the reader through successive steps in assessing and planning for the improved function of a family business. This book can be used by an individual or a family group as the quintessential planning and development guide.
