The Importance of Training for Management Succession
Many business succession plans focus on the succession of ownership but neglect to address the issue of management succession. Whether you expect the management team that will follow you to the corner office to come from inside or outside the company, you should consider training one or several people to serve as interim or successor management. This can serve multiple purposes. First, having trained successor management in the business can work into your short-term contingency plan established to cover your unexpected absence from the business (due to death, for instance). Second, trained successor management can serve as interim management during the transition period during and after your withdrawal from the business at your retirement, while your interest is being transferred after your death, or when you head out for that long vacation you have been yearning for.

Get to Know Your Relationship Manager
In a general sense, lending commonly boils down to credit risk. Banks typically charge higher interest rates if they perceive a borrower has greater risk of default. When risk is anticipated to be too high, banks might not originate or renew a loan at all. By establishing regular communications with your lender or Relationship Manager, you have the opportunity to truly educate them about your business. This is just one way to avoid misunderstandings about perceived risks within your business.
