PHASE 2 – Analysis of the organizational capacity of the company to support the internationalization process
All the functions involved in the sales process of the products are examined in order to evaluate their ability to support foreign development and to activate the necessary organizational and competence adjustment processes. In particular we analyze the areas: Commercial, Marketing, Logistics, Administration, Finance and Legal. The main foreign markets are analyzed to evaluate the most appropriate ways of entry in relation to the characteristics of the company. The sales objectives and the spending budget are then defined.

The corporate reorganization of YGOSS Consulting is developed as follows:

PHASE 2 – Analysis of the organizational activities assigned to the different offices

GENERATIONAL PASSAGES YGOSS Consulting has supported numerous entrepreneurs, in particular of SMEs, maturing the sensitivity and the necessary experience of these situations of change that involve not only organizational but also emotional aspects.
PHASE 1 – Identification of the patrimonial and organizational situation of the company

PHASE 2 – Crossing of the company situation with characteristics and expectations of stakeholders involved and definition of the necessary governance model
We then examine the ownership shares, the skills and willingness to participate in the various subjects, also in relation to whether the transition between 1st and 2nd generation or between 2nd and 3rd is taking place. It is also necessary to establish the role that the current owner will want to assume once the transition has been completed and whether it is necessary to set up specific management bodies such as a “Family Council” or a “Family Committee”.
Phase 3 – Implementation of the generational passage
The general passage should not affect the normal development of the company and indeed should be a reason for acceleration. The project must therefore be translated into a corporate organizational plan that takes into account the corporate governance bodies, the development and career paths of family members, the need for involvement and information of family members who do not participate in company life and who fully integrates in business development plans. Family organizations must allow the family to maintain strategic guidance without interfering with corporate managerial choices.
