Insights from Famous Family Business Feuds
A compelling and revealing account of what can happen when world-famous family businesses fall out. Family Wars draws lessons from disastrous conflicts within dynasties such as Gucci and Ford and provides practical advice on successful succession planning, corporate and family governance and conflict resolution.
Many of the world's most successful businesses are family owned. With this comes the threat of family bust-ups, sibling rivalry and petty jealousies.
Family Wars takes you behind the scenes on a rollercoaster ride through the ups and downs of some of the biggest family-run companies in the world, showing how family in-fighting has threatened to bring about their downfall.
Whether it’s the Redstone’s courtroom battles or the feud over Henry Ford’s reluctance to let go of the reigns, the book reveals the origins, the extent and the final resolution of some of the most famous family feuds in recent history.
An astonishing expose of the way families do business and how arguments can threaten to blow a business apart, Family Wars also offers valuable advice on how such problems can be contained and solved.
