About this book

This book addresses a selection of major topics in family businesses, namely ‘managerialization’ and ‘professionalization’, succession, internationalization, access to financial markets, and how governance and control systems can help family firms respond to common problems inherent in the business. Written by prominent experts, the respective chapters highlight the interactions between these topics in order to develop a systems view of the distinctive challenges, and of the potential roles that governance and control systems can play in these contexts. The book is divided into two main parts, the first of which reviews the current literature and develops a comprehensive theoretical framework. Based on these theoretical insights, the second part then interprets and discusses the empirical evidence, including case studies on family-run firms in Italy.
