Family business is the dominant form of business throughout the world, both in emerging economies and in developed countries. Family businesses are typically rooted in tradition but they are also able to develop innovative mindsets and culture. What is exactly long-term success for a family business? And what are its peculiar elements? This handbook, in which Santiago Íñiguez has contributed with one chapter, is an integrated and analytical review of the existing literature on the subject. Fabio Corsico has collected testimonials from the most influential family managers and experts in the field. Every chapter provides both analyzes and conclusions with rigor and relevance, linking theory to practice, thus offering an essential reference manual for researchers and professionals.
