  1. If number of hours worked isn’t a good indicator of level of commitment (I agree its not), what is? A large part of the determination of whether to transition/sell/gift the business to the next generation is to really understand what the level of commitment is.

    • Commitment can be measured any number of ways, Jon: productivity, quality of team play, a desire for constant and never ending improvement (self and company), willingness to take on strategic projects – AND complete them satisfactorily, desire and capability to take the company to a higher, better place, etc. There could be quite a few additional measurements. The important thing is that you have them, everyone understands them, and that they create a fair, level playing field among NextGen candidates.
