The learning ability of a firm is often cited as a necessary feature for its longevity. This ability has a greater impact on family businesses, given their characteristics. This research analyses the learning ability of Portuguese small family businesses. The research is based on an empirical study with primary data collected from a multiple case study of 22 firms. The results indicate that firms have some learning ability but on a small scale. The results also show that this learning capacity is almost absent from the design of firms’ operations and employees and is especially related to the owner-manager and the relationship established with the environment.

Esta tese teve por objetivo verificar o impacto da influência familiar na discricionariedade da determinação da remuneração dos executivos em empresas brasileiras. Assume-se que a visão tradicional da relação principal x agente é fundamentalmente distinta nas empresas familiares, nas quais a propriedade e a gestão se confundem, se não totalmente, pelo menos em parte. Nesse caso, questionam-se o uso e função da remuneração por incentivo como mecanismo de alinhamento de interesses. Existem evidências de que as empresas familiares tendem a estruturar planos de incentivo com menor uso de remuneração variável, parte pelo controle natural e implícito da presença familiar na empresa, parte, por não ser compatível com preservação da riqueza socioemocional. Essas evidências influenciam nas relações esperadas: (a) quanto maior a influência familiar menor a tendência para fornecer remuneração variável aos executivos; (b) quanto maior a influência familiar maior a propensão para uso de flexibilidade na avaliação de desempenho para a determinação da remuneração variável dos executivos; (c) quanto maior a propensão para uso de flexibilidade na avaliação de desempenho menor a tendência para fornecer remuneração variável aos executivos. Para analisar essas relações...

This dissertation aims to identify the family role in the internationalization process of two family businesses: JBS, the world’s largest protein producer and Cutrale one of the world’s leader in the orange juice market. Family businesses have characteristics that are intrinsic to this type of firms. Many of the internationalization reasons or even the way they internationalize has several characteristics that are common among other family businesses. Therefore, through a qualitative research the two case studies were analyzed based on the internationalization and family businesses theories. However, in those companies the role of the family was not a key role on the firms’ internationalization processes. This aroused questions such as whether the size and/ or industry of the company had an impact on the family’s role on the internationalization process of the business. These questions were not the focus of this study but are subsidies for future research.

The objective of this study is to better understand and illustrate the process and the motivations for corporate governance implementation in Brazilian privately held family businesses. Three case companies were analyzed through an adapted developmental framework to illustrate the progression in corporate governance in response to changes in the ownership, investment and management dimensions over time. In this development, causal relationships between corporate governance and the three other framework dimensions were identified. It was found that the analyzed companies´ corporate governance implementation was motivated by the need to curb agency costs, whereas a cornerstone in this development was the first generational change. Only after the family businesses have reached the necessary maturity on all three dimensions, corporate governance practices were implemented. Put simply, the analyzed case companies developed formal systems as they grew more complex. This study complements the academic discussions on corporate governance in family businesses by offering Brazilian evidence on its underlying motivations and sequential implementation over time.

Because of the limited research into the internationalisation process of family firms, little is known about their international behaviour. Based on an examination the internationalisation process of the eight family firms from their foundation to the present time, key determinants of the internationalisation pathways (traditional vs. born-again global) taken by family firms were identified. These included the level of commitment towards internationalisation, the financial resources available and the ability to commit and use those financial resources to develop the required capabilities. The implications for family businesses and future research are discussed in the paper.; http://www.ifera.org/pubdetail.php?id=538&pw=f64fb85e4b5d22aa84e546dc38a83663

Family enterprises make up the majority of all businesses across Western Europe. Nonetheless, they are seen as an endangered species. Succession is an especially critical moment for their survival. The succession process is shaped by the dynamics of generational relations in the family. Different institutional contexts between countries create diverse conditions for the negotiation between the generations. "Doing Succession in Europe" examines whether and how succession processes in European family businesses vary. Scholars of the family, capitalism, welfare state and law discuss comparative findings and ideas; business and legal experts highlight the concrete practices.

RESUMEN: En España, según el Instituto de Empresa Familiar (IEF) el 65% de las empresas son familiares. Por ello, el objetivo de este estudio comparativo es comprender mejor este tipo de empresas y la forma en que estas empresas son gestionadas. Para ello, se han elegido dos empresas familiares cántabras de éxito del sector alimentario como son Serafina SL y La Casa El Macho SL. En este trabajo también se ha estudiado cómo es la estructura de estas empresas, qué tipos de empresas familiares existen en función de distintos criterios como el sociodemográfico, el tiempo que lleva la empresa en funcionamiento, el estilo de dirección que sigue o la etapa evolutiva en la que se encuentra la misma. Por otro lado, se ha analizado como es el gobierno de las empresas familiares, y su proceso de sucesión ya que no todas las empresas ponen en práctica los aspectos teóricos que son necesarios para una adecuada gestión de su empresa, por lo que se profundizará en el análisis abarcando tanto los puntos fuertes de las empresas como sus puntos más débiles. Otra de las cuestiones que se abordan en este estudio es el proceso de internacionalización de las empresas familiares. Finalmente el trabajo presenta una serie de conclusiones derivadas de la comparativa realizada entre Serafina y El macho en la cual se aportan ideas que podrían mejorar algunos aspectos de las empresas analizadas.; ABSTRACT: In Spain...

peer-reviewed; A review of the entrepreneurship and small business literature indicates that little to no research has examined family businesses in Ireland in terms of their structure and composition, the management of the family business, and the training conducted by family businesses. The purpose of this paper is to examine these dynamics through the findings of primary research, thereby providing a profile of family businesses in Ireland. First, the paper aims to examine the demographics of the family business members and to understand the composition and structure of the family business. Second, the paper aims to understand how the family business is managed, and third, how training is carried out within the family business. The research methodology adopted for this study was that of a postal questionnaire. The questionnaire-based survey was applied to a sample of 500 family businesses in Ireland and a total of 121 valid responses were received, which resulted in a valid response rate of 24.2 per cent. The findings of the study identifies that family businesses are a source of employment for family members and typically the owner/manager is heavily involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. The most prevalent form of ownership is that of a husband and wife team. Results indicate that when the family business is small...

Some of the same aspects of family-owned businesses that can give them a competitive advantage are also the factors that contribute to the high levels of destructive conflict that often occur in them. For example, close family ties can contribute to strong bonds of trust and cooperation, but they also can add emotional fuel to the fire when conflicts arise. Barney Jordaan argues that the best cure for these conflicts is prevention-through establishing basic family governance structures and, failing that, dispute resolution processes that are sensitive to the distinctive dynamic and singular needs of a family-owned business. Family businesses are notoriously light in their use of bureaucracy. It is one of their appealing characteristics, and an aspect of their speed and flexibility in problem solving. Their informality and intimacy makes elaborate decision-making methods unnecessary. However, it is a common failing of all growing businesses that they do not recognize how growth is changing them. They are like a child who stays in short pants even when they're splitting at the seams.

lntergenerational transfers are extremely important in family businesses, because of the economic advantages of passing the business to the next generation as a 'going concern'. In order to pass the business as a 'going concern' it is necessary for the operators and the successors to work together for a specified period. This intergenerational cooperation allows the entrepreneurial family to utilize the benefits of within-family implicit old-age security arrangements. We suggest a method to calculate the present value of these benefits, denoted as 'pension wealth'. Intra-family old-age security arrangements also pose financial risks on successors that may offset the benefit the household attains from the implicit annuity arrangement. We illustrate the usefulness of this framework with data from Israeli family farms.

Small firms are a major player in development. Thus, entrepreneurship is frequently attached to these rms and it must be present in daily management of factors such as planning and cooperation. We intend to analyze these factors, comparing familiar and non-familiar businesses. This study was conducted in a Portuguese region in the north of Portugal - Vale do Sousa . The results allow us to conclude that even with some managerial di erences it was not possible to identify distinct patterns between them. The main goal of this paper is to open research lines on important issues to distinguish familiar from non-familiar businesses.

peer-reviewed; Objectives: The main aim of this paper is to examine what can be done to plan for divorce should divorce arise for members of a family business in Ireland. A number of objectives have been formulated; firstly the research will examine the issue of di-vorce and what the law states pertaining to it. Next what support there is for family businesses when it comes to divorce and what preparations could be made should di-vorce occur will be identified. Prenuptial agreements will be examined and the views and opinions of owner/managers of family businesses will also be examined. Prior work: Little to no research has been conducted in Ireland to examine the views and opinions of family owned businesses and the implications divorce may have on the business. Since divorce is still a fairly new concept in Ireland this will be a semi-nal piece of research. Approach: Primary data from a stratified random sample of independent unquoted businesses was collected. The study relied upon a single key informant per family business for obtaining self-reported data. Results: The interim results indicate that divorce has not been planned for by family businesses in Ireland. There are mixed feelings as to prenuptial agreements. Some re-spondents have indicated that prenuptial agreements are just for 'rich' people and aren't necessary in Ireland. Others want the law to be changed so as to enable prenup-tial agreements to be legal. Implications: This research is of value to the owner/managers of family businesses as it gives an indication as to what should be included in a prenuptial agreement. Fur-thermore...

Peer-reviewed; Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether small and medium-sized family businesses in Ireland have the potential to be classified as learning organizations. Design/methodology/approach – The research methodology adopted for this study is that of multiple-case studies. In this research, personal interviews were selected as the data collection method. On the basis of Eisenhardt’s premise that a study of between four and ten cases is suitable for qualitative studies, a total of six owner-managers of family small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were interviewed. Findings – The findings of the case studies support the argument that family businesses have the potential to be learning organizations. However, the extent to which these family businesses are potentially learning organizations depends on the size of the family business and the structure imposed on the business. Micro family businesses struggle to be classified as learning organizations due to the lack of a learning orientation. These businesses lack systems for the monitoring of information and lack the ability to be reactive to market changes. Small family businesses have the potential to be classified as learning organizations. This is due to the fact that small family businesses have learning at the core of their business and systems in place to deal with a learning orientation. Medium-sized family businesses also have the potential to be learning organizations...

O presente estudo buscou identificar, a partir da realização de uma pesquisa de campo, as características mais presentes no modelo de gestão das empresas familiares da amostra utilizada, para inferir, a partir das observações realizadas, sobre aquelas que pudessem explicar sua longevidade, sob a perspectiva do processo sucessório. Para alcançar tal objetivo, executivos da mais alta hierarquia de 71 empresas do Estado do Rio Grande do Sul foram entrevistados. Os dados coletados, orientados por um roteiro de entrevistas, foram testados com a utilização de estatística descritiva, apoiada pela aplicação de teste de correlação de Pearson. O estudo levou em consideração o que foi observado na pesquisa de campo, contraposto às práticas de gestão empresarial consagradas pela literatura especializada. As conclusões do estudo sugerem que as empresas de maior porte possuem modelos de gestão mais aperfeiçoados e com características próximas àquelas preconizadas pela literatura especializada. Nas empresas de menor porte, porém, tais características destoam, em parte, das recomendadas pela mencionada literatura. Não houve, entretanto, evidências suficientemente fortes que permitissem a conclusão de que tais características fossem determinantes para a continuidade das organizações objetos do estudo.; The present study...

With the overall aim of highlighting and analyzing the dilemmas of parents and offspring regarding the succession process in family businesses, this exploratory qualitative study was conducted assuming that these dilemmas play a determinant role in the planning (or lack thereof), in the execution and the outcome of the succession process, and in the future of the family business and its chances of continuity. This paper sought to combine the theoretical support offered by the approach applied to family businesses with the ideas of Bauman (2007a; 2007b; 2008) on the liquidity of existence and the empirical field concerning organizations with these characteristics in a specific services segment. Data collection was conducted through semi-structured interviews with 12 individuals (five parents to be succeeded and seven successor-offspring), all of them working in five different small and medium-sized Brazilian family-owned enterprises. Ten major dilemmas were identified, five of which concerned the parents while the other five concerned the offspring appointed by their parents as their successors. Analyzed in light of the related literature, the results indicate conclusively that the parent's dilemmas are primarily tied to the duality of life and death...

The aim of this article is to investigate how owners of family businesses combine their traditional heritage with changes in a new competitive arena. This is done by allowing the owners and managers of six vineyards to give voice to their concerns about the past, present, and future. The findings suggest that family businesses in the South African wine industry are subject to a process of institutionalisation in which entrepreneurial activities, which are part of this process, may not be as entrepreneurial as they appear at first. It is found that the two forms of logic behind the institutionalisation of the family firm and entrepreneurial activities in the context of the post-apartheid era can be successfully merged. Theoretical and practical implications bring the article to a close.
