A maior parte das empresas do mundo tem origem histórica vinculada à família e assim permanecem por toda a sua existência. Neste tipo de empreendimento os sistemas família, propriedade e negócio encontram-se sobrepostos e tanto abordagens econômicas quanto psicológicas são importantes para a o entendimento. Esta pesquisa, realizada em uma empresa familiar, buscou compreender as relações entre a dinâmica de liderança da família dirigente e dimensões da cultura organizacional. O método utilizado foi o estudo de caso com delineamento qualitativo analisado sob a ótica sistêmica e psicodinâmica.

Family businesses have specifi c characteristics which are the product of the interaction between family and business. To comprehend these two dimensions, it is sometimes necessary to use different methodological approaches to make the comprehension of such interaction possible. Thus, this paper investigates the dynamics between family and business by applying the historiographic method and the genogram technique. The results indicate that the application of these two methods extends the possibilities of comprehension about the interaction between family and business. The main contribution of this paper is of a methodological nature, because it indicates a qualitative research route that can be followed by other researchers interested in studying the interaction family-organization. It also may contribute to the advance of family business research, especially concerning the synergies and confl icts generated through the socially constructed relationships between family members and the family business.

The purpose of this paper is to comprehend social representations of kinship relations in a group consisting of twelve family firms from the pharmaceutical industry, located in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. In addition, the theory of social representations was employed as the methodological approach, in order to uncover representations produced by different actors about the influence of kinship relations on the family group. The results revealed the occurrence of two major representations: kinship as social integration and a mechanism for the maintenance of the established organizational order, and kinship as a source of conflict. We concluded that the family businesses all shared aspects of contradictory practices and diverse objectives; at times focusing on business objectives and needs, while at other times being dominated by personal and/or family desires. As such, it is difficult to develop formulas and analytical models to understand study objects such as the family business group. This is because its actions are characterized by simultaneous subjective and objective aspects, in a constant dynamic of interaction between family and business.

peer-reviewed; The aim of this policy paper is to describe the current role of academic family enterprise education in Finland. Family business centers and family business programmes have been started around the world to offer education for family entrepreneurs and next generation members. MBAs, master’s degrees in science, and other degrees are offered for key members of the family businesses. At the same time, we are having a debate on are entrepreneurs born or made? The role of entrepreneurship and enterprise education at university level is unclear, and many might believe that entrepreneurship does not even belong to the academic world. This policy paper presents the academic family enterprise programme offered in Finland, at the University of Jyväskylä. Creating a full family business Master’s degree programme takes a long time to design and implement. Enterprise education policy needs resources to support planning and designing such programmes, because there exists a need to learn more about family entrepreneurship and family business management. Also, interdisciplinary collaboration helps family business education development. National and international visibility and collaboration between family entrepreneurs, family business associations...

Australian family firms make a significant contribution to the Australian and global economy. Despite the fact that the complexities associated with managing a family business are not addressed by classical management theory, limited empirical research has documented the international expansion of family firms. Building upon the stage model theory, the network theory and the organisation capabilities perspective of internationalisation, this study examines whether family firms differ from non-family firms with regard to the propensity for and extent of their internationalisation. The results, arrived at by using the most recently available longitudinal database of Australian businesses, highlight that family firms are less likely to internationalise compared to non-family firms. Although an examination of internationalised firms found that the extent of internationalisation of family firms is less than that of non-family firms, this difference is not persistently significant over time. This suggests that there is no marked difference in the extent of internationalisation of internationalised family and non-family firms. The results also suggest that older and larger firms, committed to innovation, networking and an orientation towards growth...

PURPOSE: The interaction of the chief financial officer (CFO) with family and non-family managers is important for the financial management of a family business to maximise wealth creation within the business. This paper explores the role and the possible conflict with managers from the family. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: A mixed method is used combining interviews of CFOs, CEOs and a telephone survey of CFOs in Australia. Three propositions are tested. FINDINGS: Surprisingly, the authors find no evidence that there is substantial role conflict as has been found in previous research. Relationships with the family CEO and other family and non-family managers are usually positive. Commitment to the business from the family and strong support from the CEO are identified as making the CFO’s job easier. Conflict with external accountants appears to be minimised as external accountants usually focus on the management of personal financial affairs and taxation issues while the CFO focuses on business financial management. RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS: The sample is Australian and relatively small. Practical implications – The contribution of the CFO will be optimised by giving them the opportunity to move out of the “bean counter” role to a more strategic financial management position. ORIGINALITY/VALUE: There is limited empirical evidence relating to the role of the CFO in the family business.; Bruce Gurd and Jill Thomas

Peer-reviewed; Many family businesses begin with an innovative idea. In order to remain viable in an environment characterised by uncertainty and change, organisations and individuals alike depend upon an ability to learn. This paper focuses on the emergence of Family Resource Centres and the educational programmes delivered to family businesses. The methodology adopted for this study was a (global) email questionnaire, consisting of a sample frame of 128. A total of 112 replies were received which gives a response rate of 87.5%. It is evident from the findings that family business management has evolved into a widely taught subject in many universities and business schools and it appears that the area as an academic discipline is expanding throughout the majority of developed economies. The paper proposes recommendations to academic institutions and management consultants on what services should be provided to family businesses.

As family shareholder support is essential for the ongoing viability of the business as a family business, multi-generation family businesses which allow 'the ownership tree' to grow need to monitor the attitudes and expectations of the expanding number of family member shareholders. This paper reports on a case study of a multi-generation family business where the shareholder group had grown to 50 individual shareholders. The study explored the shareholders' views about the business and particularly their attitudes to stewardship and whether and under what circumstances, they would hold their shareholdings, pass them to the next generation of family or possibly consider relinquishing their holdings. Data was obtained from a semi-structured questionnaire and follow-up interviews. While respondents indicated that they had immense pride in being a shareholder of the family business, they admitted that their knowledge of that business was less than optimal. Financial returns were viewed as important, but the intangible rewards relating to the heritage of forebears were more so. While they were keen to pass on their shares to their children, they were uncertain about the level of commitment the next generation members would have. Lessons from this case study are discussed for other multi-generation family businesses focusing on shareholders' responsibilities as owners and the board's need to ensure timely transfer of knowledge to the wider shareholder group.; Jill Thomas

A pesquisa analisou a percepção de colaboradores de empresa familiar sobre mudanças geradas pelo processo de sucessão, identificando problemas anteriores e as possibilidades de continuidade ou eliminação destes. Classificou-se a empresa como familiar conforme definições de Bernhoeft (1991), e foram utilizadas como base de análises das mudanças as perspectivas propostas por Motta (2001). Complementando o estudo, os desafios do processo de sucessão foram entendidos pelo ponto de vista da Gestão do Conhecimento. A abordagem metodológica caracteriza-se como estudo descritivo qualitativo feito mediante entrevistas e análise documental. Utilizaram-se dados quantitativos, com a aplicação de questionários para a obtenção de dados primários. A análise dos dados caracteriza-se, predominantemente, como qualitativa descritiva e de conteúdo.

Este artigo tem como objetivo analisar a história de uma empresa familiar mineira e identificar os principais valores influenciadores de sua gestão. Realizou-se um estudo relacionado à sua história familiar, por meio de análise documental do acervo empresarial e de entrevistas com três membros de seu atual conselho administrativo: dois membros da família e um diretor veterano. Para a caracterização da empresa pesquisada, usou-se o modelo de Gersick et al. (2006), que analisa a evolução das empresas familiares em três variáveis: propriedade, família e gestão/empresa. Os valores familiares e organizacionais foram avaliados pela proposta teórica dos Tipos Motivacionais de Valores de Schwartz (1992), adaptada por Oliveira e Tamayo (2004). Os resultados apontam que os valores familiares e a gestão das empresas se entrelaçam, causando situações e reflexões sobre a manutenção dos valores organizacionais. Os valores familiares tornam-se atuantes nas ações da empresa, por meio dos exemplos vividos pelas gerações antecessoras, e são fundamentais para que as diretrizes da organização estejam, de forma sistemática, presentes nas políticas da empresa ou sejam vivenciadas por todos, fazendo com que o cotidiano organizacional tenha um referencial positivo dos valores praticados.; This work aims to analyze the history of a family business from Minas Gerais and identify its main contributing values in management.

Interpersonal ties and intra-group processes influence the ability of people to work together effectively as teams. In the context of the family business team, intra-group processes describe the interaction that takes place between the family members and the resultant psychological climate that exists in the family business. Given the increasing number of sibling teams among family businesses, as well as the challenges they face as team members, this study focuses on sibling teams in family businesses and the intra-group processes that influence their success. The primary objective of this study is to identify and empirically test the intragroup processes influencing the effectiveness of sibling partnerships. A structured questionnaire was distributed to 1323 sibling partner respondents. The respondents were identified by means of a convenience snowball sampling technique, and the data were collected from 371 usable questionnaires. The empirical findings of this study show that the sibling relationship and fairness are important determinants of sibling team effectiveness.
