In this illuminating casebook, Roland Kidwell brings together eminent scholars and researchers, showcasing real-world examples of family businesses and potential challenges they may face. Chapters encapsulate possible tensions that may manifest within family businesses, including sibling rivalry, intergenerational conflict, and clashing ideas about work ethic. Ultimately, the authors propose that it is essential for stakeholders and those in leadership to understand what techniques, policies and behaviors do, and indeed do not, work in family firms.
