Issue at hand
The company had enjoyed years of success. However, the owner’s age did not permit him to continue his role in the company. It was time for him to retire. Although, doing it at once and out of the blue would only bring chaos in the company. Hence, it was extremely important to do it in a strategic manner.
The objective with this assignment of Leap’s was to strategically relieve the owner of the organization. The assignment was carried out over a period of 2 years in a phased manner. Leap first found a strategic partner to the company who proved to be very useful from the business perspective. In the latter phases of the assignment, the business was eventually sold off to the strategic partners. This way the owner was relieved in a smooth and systematic fashion, thereby not causing any turmoil in the organization.
Their engagement with Leap proved to be successful. The owner was successfully relieved without any disturbances through the subsequent levels of the company’s hierarchical structure.
