TEACHING CASE: Succession in Chinese Family Businesses (C): An Urgent Family Meeting

The CEIBS Centre for Family Heritage was set up as a knowledge centre committed to helping China’s family businesses sustain and go global as well as enabling foreign enterprises to better understand China’s family firms.

The Centre’s Co-Director Professor Jean Lee and Case Consultant Rebecca Chung are currently developing a collection of cases focusing on succession and business transformation issues at Chinese family companies.


The role-play exercise that relates to this (C) case illustrates the current Chinese cultural characteristics that influence leadership succession and highlights the case issues to be explored in the case discussion. This is the third case in a three-case series.
