Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. ; Carlock, Randel S. ; Florent-Treacy, ElizabethINSEAD Area: Entrepreneurship and Family EnterprisePublisher: Arab Scientific, 2008.Language: ArabicDescription: 336 p. : Ill. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 97899874623Type of document: INSEAD BookBibliography/Index: Includes bibliographical references and indexAbstract: The oldest form of commercial organisations, family and entrepreneurial enterprises are a prime source of wealth creation and employment across the world. In a family enterprise, issues like hiring, dividend payment, or succession, despite being difficult, are just business tasks, requiring planning and decision-making. These planning and decision-making processes can be made extraordinarily complex and often destructive by the dynamics of controlling family. The ability of family leaders to adapt to the changing needs and requirements of individual family members can be critical. The book begins by demonstrating that many years of achievement through generations can be destroyed by the next, if the family fails to address the psychological issues they face. By exploring cases from famous and less well-know family businesses across the world, the authors discuss entrepreneurs, the entrepreneurial family and the lifecycles of the individual and the organisation. They go on to show how companies going through change and transition can avoid the pitfalls that endanger both family and company. The authors then apply tools that will help family businesses in transition and offer their analyses and conclusions.
