This maybe because many businesses think succession plans are a long, drawn-out process, said Ted Clark, executive director of the Northeastern University Center for Family Business.

    “They think it’s a series of smaller preparations, a buy-sell agreement—but really it’s just understanding who would take over if something happens, and a plan to execute it,” Clark said.
