Chapter Chapter 1 in Knowledge and the Family Business, 2011, pp 1-7 from Springer
Abstract For long time management and organizational research ignored family firms, even if they were dominant in many national economies. Only in the last decade the importance of the question was increasingly recognized. Apart from the fundamental research stream that aimed to understand the definitive essence and nature of family firms and how they differ from non-family firms, researchers were also interested in approaching practical managerial issues and real strategic matters.
