    Heterogeidad en las empresas familiares: Contextualizando la adopción de mecanismos de Gobierno Familiar.

    Arteaga, Rocío; Escriba-Esteve, Alejandro

    (2020). Article

    This research is aimed to better understand what characteristics of family firms create a context in which family governance systems are more frequently adopted. Taking into account the characteristics of family firms in terms of ownership structure, management involvement, and family and organizational complexity, we identify four different contexts that create different communication needs and are related to the use of different family governance mechanisms. We characterize the different contexts or types of family firms as: founder-centric, protective, consensual, and business-evolved. Our findings show that family protocols are associated to contexts with high family involvement in...

    This research is aimed to better understand what characteristics of family firms create a context in which family governance systems are more frequently adopted. Taking into account the characteristics of family firms in terms of ownership structure, management involvement, and family and organizational complexity, we identify four different contexts that create different communication needs and are related to the use of different family governance mechanisms. We characterize the different contexts or types of family firms as: founder-centric, protective, consensual, and business-evolved. Our findings show that family protocols are associated to contexts with high family involvement in management and family complexity, while family councils are more frequent when there is a separation of managerial and ownership roles and there is a high organizational and family complexity. The study highlights the value of social systems theory in order to explain the association between the characteristics of different firm types and contexts, and the use of family councils and family protocols to govern the relationship between the owner family and the business. Family governance mechanisms are widely recommended by practitioners and scholars. However, they are usually adopted only by a small percentage of family firms. This study helps to better understand what family governance systems may be more appropriate in different contexts and relativize the necessity of these governance mechanisms in function of the communication needs created within each context.

    Does the Family Business have a competitiveness problem?

    Escribá Esteve, Alejandro

    (2017). Recurs electrònic

    Does the Family Business have a competitiveness problem?. Cátedra de Empresa Familiar de la Universitat de València. No.1, enero 2017

    In the research note # 1 of this new collection, results of a comparative analysis of the competitiveness of family businesses versus non-family businesses are shown. The results of our research show that family businesses suffer, on average, from a lack of competitiveness compared to non-family businesses. This lack is observed above all in the lower presence of family businesses in the groups of companies with the highest competitive level. However, this problem of lower competitiveness does not occur in the case of family businesses that have reached a greater dimension. In fact, the biggest family businesses are more competitive than the non-familiar. This evidence suggests that...

    In the research note # 1 of this new collection, results of a comparative analysis of the competitiveness of family businesses versus non-family businesses are shown. The results of our research show that family businesses suffer, on average, from a lack of competitiveness compared to non-family businesses. This lack is observed above all in the lower presence of family businesses in the groups of companies with the highest competitive level. However, this problem of lower competitiveness does not occur in the case of family businesses that have reached a greater dimension. In fact, the biggest family businesses are more competitive than the non-familiar. This evidence suggests that business growth is a facilitating element to avoid or minimize many of the problems that tend to be associated with the family-company relationship, without necessarily losing the positive aspects associated with the family character of the property and the management.
