Description

Product type:  
CPD online course
Category:  
Practice and business improvement

If you start to consider your departure from business life, you must consider if the firm you have built up will have value in someone else's eyes.

A succession plan allows for your orderly exit. This means it is not left to chance and there is a plan in place which gives a degree of comfort to those involved, particularly staff.

This course is part of a series of courses based on the IFAC Guide to Practice Management for Small and Medium Sized Practices and has been produced with the permission of IFAC.

Work through the knowledge and application modules to understand the theory and exchange your ideas with your peers. Then complete the final Putting it into Practice module to create an action plan for your practice.
