Inside Family Business, Behavior-wise
Some of my most valuable discoveries come while I’m looking for something else. Call it serendipity or call it dumb luck. If I want to locate my golf shoes on the first playable day of the fall, all I have to do is launch an intensive search for the December 1989 issue of National Geographic.
It happened again last week when I was doing some research for a book I’m writing. I was digging around for some thoughtful discourse on why families act the way they do when I came across an article in the scholarly journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice by Jess Chua, James Chrisman and Pramodita Sharma titled "Defining the Family Business by Behavior.â€ The authors make some points that are just too good to keep to myself.
