The CT Study Group was formed in February 1999 by founding
members Jim Murphy, Vivien Blackford and Paul Sessions to provide an
opportunity to learn from fellow professionals in the various disciplines.
Mission Statement: "To promote an active dialogue among an intimate
group (10 to 12) of professionally diverse practitioners in the family business
field to explore and share the systems, techniques and experiences that are of
concern and interest to the group."
Meetings are held occasionally and
usually run from 8:30am-11:30am to allow thorough discussion of the agenda
Recurring topics of discussion include:
1) collaboration and the
desire to work with, as well as learn from, each other;
2) learning and
support for the case study method as a means to achieve it; and
networking--admission that at least a part of the group's attraction is the
opportunity to network together and strengthen working relationships.
