Paakkanen choosing to stay with Marimekko to start training a successor is a strong choice for her and the company. This still gives her control over the company, since she will be personally choosing who will take over for her. She can train her successor to manage exactly how Paakkanen desires. That way, when it comes time for her to retire, she is comfortable leaving Marimekko in this person’s hands. With finding a successor she will be adding some sort of hierarchy within the group, creating even more control for her before she prepares to retire. This boosts diversification of roles in the company, which can be used as a type of reward system. If people are accomplishing their work in a successful time frame and manner, they can hold a higher role in the company. On the other hand, if Paakkanen stays to find a successor she could fall short in a few ways.
