Who should have such Plan?

Any business person who owns and run a business.  It is more crucial if the person is a "keyman" to the success of the business.  Since most companies are closely knitted family business, it is imperative that the boss should have a plan to hand over the business to the next generation.  If there is no such plan, squabble will result amongst the heirs as to who is qualified to run the business.  Many companies went belly up when the boss passed on.  Sad but true fact.
