What can businesses, SENIOR MANAGER’S & leader’s learn from family businesses?
By Professor Gilbert Achermann & Professor Denise H. Kenyon Rouvinez
Family businesses are highly complex. They must continuously align the interests of the family with the ownership and objectives of the business. Family businesses are both strong and fragile at the same time, and typically have a very long-term and values-based approach, often playing a crucial role in local and global economies.
Do they achieve this because they are “more human”? What do they do differently and what is their main focus? How does working in (or for) one impact your decision making? What can you learn from the family business model? And did you know that globally, about 70% of businesses are family businesses…?
