The Problem of the Plateaued Owner-Manager
Abstract:This article discusses the phenomenon of plateaued, or suboptimizing behavior, by owner-managers of smaller companies. While it may appear that owner-managers have every reason to enjoy their professions and maximize the value of their businesses, we assert that many owner-managers devote their energies to activities outside the business. The article examines not only symptoms and possible causes of this type of behavior but also offers some alternatives for overcoming this problem.
