Professor K RamachandranYet another issue of our Family Business Newslettler !

We are very much encouraged with the feedback and support received from our well wishers that enable us to constantly improve the relevance of the contents for the family business community.

We have captured the essence of two scholarly articles in this issue, one on succession and the other on leadership. We hope you will find them interesting. Professor Ajay Bhalla’s analysis of competitive advantage is yet another interesting piece.

By the way, preparations for the forthcoming Third Asian Invitational Conference on Family Business are in full swing. We have received overwhelming response to it. In case you are still contemplating whether to attend it or not, please decide fast as only limited seats are now available. The conference dates are 4 - 6 February 2011. Please visit for details.

I am delighted to add that the latest Financial Times ranking of the global MBA programmes has placed ISB at 13; you will be happy to know that we have been in the top 20 consecutively for the past four years. Many thanks for your support and encouragement.
Best wishes,
Professor K Ramachandran
