DescriptionContentsAuthors

The values and cultures of successful family businesses have long been acclaimed but rarely examined. This book attempts to rectify that. Featuring cross-Atlantic contributions from Bocconi, Harvard, London Business School, Kellogg and others, this important compilation assembles leading research by those who pioneered the field before it became popular. It addresses real issues that family business owners face on a daily basis - from strategy and governance, to culture and performance - fostering professional interactions that will no doubt stimulate further research on this special subject.
