Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis says successful family businesses can create platforms for extensive growth and challenge existing business markets.
It never stops; there's no such thing as 'success attained'. Businesses are not static; they're dynamic and ever demanding. That's where family businesses sometimes struggle.— Pavlo Phitidis, business growth specialist
Phitidis said when a family business moves forward through generations, the personal features of the business need to change in order to grow.
For Christensen Tools to take their business to the next level, Phitidis suggests that the business ensures their product is adopted by technicians at an early stage of their careers.
