Pourquoi des Journées FaB.ER ?
Les champs des entreprises familiales et de l’entrepreneuriat se sont développés de façon autonome, tout en entretenant un certaine proximité en matière d’éducation, de conférences ou d’associations scientifiques (Katz, 2003 ; Sharma, Hoy, Astrachan et Koiranen, 2007 ; Chabaud et Sammut, 2014). Cela leur a permis de créer un dialogue fructueux : si l’entrepreneuriat prend place dans des contextes familiaux (Aldrich et Cliff, 2003 ; Salvato et Aldrich, 2012), l’accent s’est également porté sur le comportement entrepreneurial des entreprises familiales (Shepherd et Patzelt, 2017), conduisant à l’émergence d’un champ de recherche consacré à leur recouvrement : l’entrepreneuriat familial (Fayolle et Bégin, 2009 ; Bettinelli et al., 2014; Radu Lefebvre et Lefebvre, 2016 ; Randerson et al., 2015, 2016).

About the Workshop series

The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia Business School and the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal invite you to the

3rd Paper Development Workshop Series in Family Entrepreneurship

Audencia Business School hosts an annual Paper Development Workshop on family entrepreneurship, and the school is among the international leaders in this emerging area of scholarship. The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society launched this Paper Development Series in Family Entrepreneurship in 2017. After a first edition on ‘Family entrepreneurship writing workshop’ (2017) and a second edition on ‘Theorizing family entrepreneurship’ (2018), we are happy to announce the third edition of this series of research workshops organized in collaboration with the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal (GEST ESG UQAM), at Montréal, the 4th and 5th of May 2020..

GEST is a research center of the University of Québec in Montréal’ School of Management (ESG UQAM) which addresses entrepreneurial practices, identities and discourses in marginalized contexts and for minorized people. It aims at participating to a change for a new inclusive and fruitful relation between entrepreneurship and social transformations and then addressing the dark side of entrepreneurial practices. The GEST members challenge theoretical assumptions and consider entrepreneuring in a process perspective.

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

 

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (to be confirmed) to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on May 4-5 2020 in Montréal, Canada. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

 

Structure of the Workshop

The Paper Development Workshop will be held in Montréal over two full days, May 4-5, 2020. The workshop will include keynote lectures, reading workshops and paper development sessions. ABSTRACT/PAPER SUBMISSION Please note that the aim of this Paper Development Workshop is to enable authors improve their manuscripts before submission to the special issue but also to discuss emerging ideas and research projects. As a consequence, two types of Abstracts can be submitted to the workshop :
  • Extended Abstracts of 3000 words (including references and appendices) presenting the purpose of the paper, the theoretical background, the research gap, the methodological approach (in empirical papers), the main findings and expected contributions.
  • Short Abstracts of 1500 words (including references and appendices) presenting the research topic, a tentative theoretical background and research gap, and the (collected or to be collected) empirical material.
All those are interested to attend the workshop should submit either an extended or a short abstract by February 15, 2020 to mradu@audencia.com. Authors will be notified of acceptance or otherwise by March 1st, 2020. Full working papers of about 10-15 pages are due for April 4, 2020 for the authors who would like to receive a written feedback from the Guest editors. Participation to the Paper Development Workshop does not guarantee publication in the special issue and submission to the special issue is not restricted to Paper Development Workshop participants. Double track PDW The program comprises two different tracks. The Full Paper Track will enable those authors who already developed an advanced paper to discuss the paper in detail with the guest editors and the other participants. A Short Paper Track will give the opportunity to PhD students and other authors who recently began to develop research on family entrepreneuring or who plan to do so in the following months to further develop their work.
  • Full paper track
The authors who submit a full paper before April 4th will be able to take part to the Full paper track. The Full paper track will include a detailed discussion of the paper by full paper track participants and written feedback from guest editors.
  • Short paper track

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

 

The aim of this special issue is to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses. The Guest Editors encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Helin, 2011; Helin & Jabri, 2014; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Éditeurs : Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Céline Barrédy, Alain Fayolle

Thématique du numéro spécial
Les entreprises familiales représentent la grande majorité des entreprises au niveau mondial que ce soit dans les pays développés ou émergents1. Selon Fanny Letier, directrice de l’activité PME à la banque publique Bpifrance2, 83% des entreprises françaises en font partie, toute taille et secteur confondus. Pourtant, ce n’est que depuis quelques décennies que le champ disciplinaire du « family business » a vu le jour et démarré son développement, en parallèle et souvent de manière étanche par rapport au champ disciplinaire connexe, celui de l’entrepreneuriat. Ces deux champs se sont structurés et développés séparément, avec leurs propres spécialistes et leurs propres terrains, leurs modèles théoriques, leurs journaux et leurs conférences dédiées. Pourtant, leur proximité est réelle3 et leur dialogue nécessaire en raison du rôle reconnu joué par la famille dans la genèse et la transmission de l’esprit entrepreneurial et des compétences entrepreneuriales, également de l’intention entrepreneuriale ou encore des comportements entrepreneuriaux4. C’est ce qui explique l’émergence, lors des dernières années, d’un nouveau champ de recherche, « l’entrepreneuriat familial », situé à l’intersection de l’entrepreneuriat, du family business, de la sociologie et de la psychologie de la famille.
Si le champ du family business s’intéresse aux entreprises familiales caractérisées comme des entreprises dont la propriété et/ou le contrôle reviennent majoritairement à une ou des famille(s) dont l’intention est de transmettre l’entreprise de génération en génération5, l’entrepreneuriat familial englobe ce champ tout en le dépassant. Il pose comme objet d’étude central le phénomène entrepreneurial au sein des familles en affaires et des entreprises familiales. Le focus de l’entrepreneuriat familial relève ainsi de l’étude des pratiques et des comportements entrepreneuriaux des individus, des familles, et des entreprises6. Pourquoi s’intéresser au phénomène entrepreneurial dans ce cadre précis de la famille et des entreprises familiales ? En effet, il a été montré que la pérennité et la croissance des entreprises familiales multigénérationnelles dépendent étroitement de la présence et de l’importance des pratiques et des comportements entrepreneuriaux chez les membres de la famille, comme chez les employés et les managers externes7.
L’environnement sociodémographique, légal, économique et culturel des familles en affaires évolue rapidement au travers du monde. Ces évolutions influencent à la fois le comportement des membres des familles en affaires mais également celui des entreprises familiales elles-mêmes. Des enjeux de définition de la famille, des questions liées au genre et aux nouvelles ambitions et revendications des femmes, l’intérêt croissant à la fois de la sphère économique et de la sphère politique pour les impacts sociaux et environnementaux des entreprises transforment en profondeur le paysage dans lequel les entreprises familiales opèrent aujourd’hui. Les contours légaux de la famille au premier rang desquels les familles recomposées, l’adoption ainsi que leurs évolutions récentes comme le mariage homosexuel ou encore la procréation médicalement assistée pour toutes les femmes, interrogent les dynamiques entrepreneuriales et leur évolutions consécutives dans le cadre de l’entreprise familiale. Pour bien comprendre les dynasties familiales, il faut prendre en compte le droit de la famille88. Les dispositifs institutionnels de soutien de l’entrepreneuriat et du repreneuriat, ainsi que le cadre institutionnel relatif à la transmission intergénérationnelle de la propriété de l’entreprise familiale affectent les choix relatifs à la création et à la transmission de ces entreprises dans le cadre de la famille ou à un tiers9.
Les propositions traiteront, entre autres, des sujets suivants :

  • Comment se transmet l’esprit entrepreneurial au sein des familles en affaires ? Quels rôles jouent l’histoire familiale, les interactions avec le dirigeant, les apprentissages formels et informels dans cette transmission ?
  • Quelles pratiques entrepreneuriales peut-on observer au sein des familles en affaires et comment peut-on les étudier et les appréhender, à travers quels choix méthodologiques et quelles approches théoriques ?
  • Quel est l’impact des comportements entrepreneuriaux (ou intrapreneuriaux) du dirigeant, du successeur, ou des managers externes sur la performance des entreprises familiales ?
  • Comment les membres des familles en affaires gèrent-ils la superposition de rôles sociaux appartenant à des univers distincts (famille, entreprise, actionnariat) lorsqu’ils lancent de nouvelles activités au sein de l’entreprise ou souhaitent introduire des innovations, changer d’orientation stratégique ou revisiter l’identité organisationnelle ?
  • Quels outils formels et informels la famille mobilise-t-elle pour transmettre et / ou générer l’esprit d’entreprendre au sein des nouvelles générations ?
  • Les doctrines institutionnelles conduisent-elles à des comportements entrepreneuriaux distincts au sein des familles ?

Échéancier :

  • Soumission des textes : Au plus tard le 30 avril 2019
  • Parution : Mars 2020

Ligne éditoriale
La revue Entreprendre et Innover est une revue de vulgarisation de haut niveau dans le domaine de l’entrepreneuriat et de l’innovation édité par DeBoeck Université. Son ambition est de mettre à la portée d’un lectorat de cadres, entrepreneurs, professionnels des réseaux de création d’entreprises et dirigeants d’entreprises, des articles originaux, solides sur le plan scientifique ou innovants sur le plan des idées exprimées, sans s’accaparer des oripeaux des publications académiques. La revue est ouverte à TOUTES les disciplines et à TOUS les points de vue qui s’intéressent à l’entrepreneuriat et à l’innovation.
Dans la mesure où cette revue s’adresse en priorité à des praticiens, nous restons attentifs à ce que les contributions aient une préoccupation d’applications pratiques, d’implications entrepreneuriales et/ou de recommandations en matière politique. Dans cet esprit, les contributions devront :

  • avoir une section faisant explicitement référence à ces préoccupations : le lecteur doit toujours pouvoir se dire en fin de lecture : et alors ? en quoi cet article m’aide à agir ou à mieux réfléchir pour mon action future ?
  • adopter un langage plus concret et opérationnel qu’il n’est d’usage dans les revues académiques : la théorie ne doit pas être absente mais vulgarisée, c’est-à-dire traduite en termes simples. Les concepts abstraits doivent être explicités et/ou illustrés par des exemples pratiques.
  • ne pas accumuler les références scientifiques : le but est de choisir quelques auteurs de référence utiles pour comprendre le propos, non de montrer l’exhaustivité de la littérature académique sur le sujet. Les références scientifiques doivent être exclusivement citées grâce aux notes de bas de page.

Le détail des consignes aux auteurs est disponible sur le site de la revue : Consignes aux auteurs E&I – janvier 2014. Il est impératif de les respecter lorsque vous envoyez votre soumission.

Toute soumission d’article doit être accompagnée des deux documents suivants:

  • La fiche descriptive disponible ici: Fiche soumission d’article E&I – janvier 2014.

Manuscript Submission Deadline: OCTOBER 1, 2019

The family’s involvement in firm governance is noted as a core driver that creates heterogeneity among family firms (Daspit, Chrisman, Sharma, Pearson, & Mahto, 2018). This form of governance allows the family to exert decision-making influence and control in the firm, while also pursuing actions that are for the good of the family (Carney, 2005). Although this governance form allows the family to exert control over the firm, the goals of the family and firm are not always aligned, and, in fact, can be quite divergent. Thus, for both the business and the family to succeed, responsible decision-making and responsible actions are paramount.

Responsible ownership is defined as the “active and long-term commitment to the family, the business, and the community, and [the ability to balance]these commitments with each other” (Lambrecht & Uhlaner, 2005). A responsible owner engages in behavior that serves the collective good of both the owners and the firm (Uhlaner, Flӧren, & Geerlings, 2007). When the family is in a governance role, responsible family ownership manifests when the family, as a group, is committed to balancing the rights and privileges of ownership with a long-term commitment to family and other (nonfamily) stakeholders of the firm (Aragón-Amonarriz, Arredondo, & Iturrioz-Landart, 2017).

Although studies are beginning to examine the effect of responsible ownership on family firm assets and outcomes (e.g., Berent-Braun & Uhlaner, 2012), even less is known about how family firms develop and sustain responsible ownership across generations. For example, Aragón-Amonarriz et al. (2017) suggest that family social capital preserves responsible family ownership across generations, yet Bergamaschi and Randerson (2016) note that differing types of family firms yield varied preferences for engaging in socially responsible actions. Further, while researchers are beginning to examine the various pathways used by families to instill responsible ownership in the future generation, these processes, intentions, and norms vary greatly across geographical and cultural contexts (e.g., González Couture & Díaz Matajira, 2015).

In all, given the nascent nature of insights and the growing importance of responsible governance, a special issue on responsible ownership promises to offers a substantial advancement to the field of family business. The objective of this special issue is to publish theoretical and empirical work that highlights notable progress and furthers understanding of responsible ownership in the family firm. A non-exhaustive list of possible topics includes:

  • How do family members become responsible owners? How do family firms strategicallyprepare current and next generation owners?
  • What is the role played by family values and/or different types of reciprocity in developingresponsible ownership that is sustainable in the family firm?
  • What theories from family science offer advanced understanding of how responsible familyownership is developed and leveraged in the family firm?
  • What are the effects of cultural, economic, institutional, and other contextual influences onresponsible ownership and the family?
  • How do family owners balance the responsibility of serving multiple stakeholders with oftendivergent interests?
  • How does responsible family ownership (simultaneously) affect family and firm financial,nonfinancial internal, and nonfinancial external outcomes?

 

Submission Guidelines: All submissions are subject to a standard double-blind review process. Manuscripts must be original, unpublished works not concurrently under review for publication at another outlet and are expected to follow the standard formatting guidelines for Journal of Family Business Management. Final manuscripts are to be submitted via the journal’s submission system (https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jfbm) no later than October 1, 2019. Authors should indicate “Special Issue” as the manuscript type and must clearly specify that the submission is for the special issue on “Responsible Ownership in Family Firms” in the cover letter. Publication of this Special Issue is expected for 2021. Workshop: Authors interested in further developing an idea for this special issue are encouraged (but not required) to submit an abstract to the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) meeting that will be held at Audencia Business School in Nantes, France, May 23-25, 2019.

Thématique du numéro spécial

appel à com EI n 41 Entrepreneuriat Familial

Les entreprises familiales représentent la grande majorité des entreprises au niveau mondial que ce soit dans les pays développés ou émergents1. Selon Fanny Letier, directrice de l’activité PME à la banque publique Bpifrance2, 83% des entreprises françaises en font partie, toute taille et secteur confondus. Pourtant, ce n’est que depuis quelques décennies que le champ disciplinaire du « family business » a vu le jour et démarré son développement, en parallèle et souvent de manière étanche par rapport au champ disciplinaire connexe, celui de l’entrepreneuriat. Ces deux champs se sont structurés et développés séparément, avec leurs propres spécialistes et leurs propres terrains, leurs modèles théoriques, leurs journaux et leurs conférences dédiées. Pourtant, leur proximité est réelle3 et leur dialogue nécessaire en raison du rôle reconnu joué par la famille dans la genèse et la transmission de l’esprit entrepreneurial et des compétences entrepreneuriales, également de l’intention entrepreneuriale ou encore des comportements entrepreneuriaux4. C’est ce qui explique l’émergence, lors des dernières années, d’un nouveau champ de recherche, « l’entrepreneuriat familial », situé à l’intersection de l’entrepreneuriat, du family business, de la sociologie et de la psychologie de la famille.

Si le champ du family business s’intéresse aux entreprises familiales caractérisées comme des entreprises dont la propriété et/ou le contrôle reviennent majoritairement à une ou des famille(s) dont l’intention est de transmettre l’entreprise de génération en génération5, l’entrepreneuriat familial englobe ce champ tout en le dépassant. Il pose comme objet d’étude central le phénomène entrepreneurial au sein des familles en affaires et des entreprises familiales. Le focus de l’entrepreneuriat familial relève ainsi de l’étude des pratiques et des comportements entrepreneuriaux des individus, des familles, et des entreprises6. Pourquoi s’intéresser au phénomène entrepreneurial dans ce cadre précis de la famille et des entreprises familiales ? En effet, il a été montré que la pérennité et la croissance des entreprises familiales multigénérationnelles dépendent étroitement de la présence et de l’importance des pratiques et des comportements entrepreneuriaux chez les membres de la famille, comme chez les employés et les managers externes7.

L’environnement sociodémographique, légal, économique et culturel des familles en affaires évolue rapidement au travers du monde. Ces évolutions influencent à la fois le comportement des membres des familles en affaires mais également celui des entreprises familiales elles-mêmes. Des enjeux de définition de la famille, des questions liées au genre et aux nouvelles ambitions et revendications des femmes, l’intérêt croissant à la fois de la sphère économique et de la sphère politique pour les impacts sociaux et environnementaux des entreprises transforment en profondeur le paysage dans lequel les entreprises familiales opèrent aujourd’hui. Les contours légaux de la famille au premier rang desquels les familles recomposées, l’adoption ainsi que leurs évolutions récentes comme le mariage homosexuel ou encore la procréation médicalement assistée pour toutes les femmes, interrogent les dynamiques entrepreneuriales et leur évolutions consécutives dans le cadre de l’entreprise familiale. Pour bien comprendre les dynasties familiales, il faut prendre en compte le droit de la famille88. Les dispositifs institutionnels de soutien de l’entrepreneuriat et du repreneuriat, ainsi que le cadre institutionnel relatif à la transmission intergénérationnelle de la propriété de l’entreprise familiale affectent les choix relatifs à la création et à la transmission de ces entreprises dans le cadre de la famille ou à un tiers9.

Les propositions traiteront, entre autres, des sujets suivants :

  • Comment se transmet l’esprit entrepreneurial au sein des familles en affaires ? Quels rôles jouent l’histoire familiale, les interactions avec le dirigeant, les apprentissages formels et informels dans cette transmission ? Quelles pratiques entrepreneuriales peut-on observer au sein des familles en affaires et comment peut-on les étudier et les appréhender, à travers quels choix méthodologiques et quelles approches théoriques ?
  • Quel est l’impact des comportements entrepreneuriaux (ou intrapreneuriaux) du dirigeant, du successeur, ou des managers externes sur la performance des entreprises familiales ?
  • Comment les membres des familles en affaires gèrent-ils la superposition de rôles sociaux appartenant à des univers distincts (famille, entreprise, actionnariat) lorsqu’ils lancent de nouvelles activités au sein de l’entreprise ou souhaitent introduire des innovations, changer d’orientation stratégique ou revisiter l’identité organisationnelle ?
  • Quels outils formels et informels la famille mobilise-t-elle pour transmettre et / ou générer l’esprit d’entreprendre au sein des nouvelles générations ?
  • Les doctrines institutionnelles conduisent-elles à des comportements entrepreneuriaux distincts au sein des familles ?

Abbé Grégoire Innovation Days- SIG “Entreprendre et Innover dans les entreprises familiales” “Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Family Business”

APPEL A COMMUNICATIONS :  Fr – SIG EIEF

CALL FOR PAPERS :  En – SIG call EIFB

English Below

Special Interest Group « Entreprendre et innover dans les entreprises familiales »

Organisé par Didier Chabaud (IAE de Paris) et Miruna Radu-Lefebvre (Audencia Business School)

Audencia Business School et le Cnam organisent le 3 et 4 avrils 2018 à Paris la 3èmee Journée de l’innovation Abbé Grégoire (JAG) au Cnam.

Dans ce cadre, le Special Interest Group « Entreprendre et innover dans les entreprises familiales » vous indique plus en détail les attentes pour les soumissions d’articles liés à cette thématique.

Les entreprises familiales constituent un champ de recherche spécifique et fécond, ainsi qu’en témoigne la multiplication des revues qui leurs sont consacrées (Family Business Review, Journal of Family Business Strategy, Journal of Family Business Management). Si elles sont généralement caractérisées par leur orientation en faveur du long terme (Miller et Le Breton Miller, 2005), voire leur pérennité (Mignon, 2000, Bégin et alii, 2014), il convient de cerner dans quelle mesure leurs comportements en matière d’innovation et d’entrepreneuriat sont spécifiques.

De ce fait, le SIG accueillera les propositions qui s’interrogent notamment sur les différentes facettes de la connexion entre entrepreneuriat, innovation et entreprises familiales :

  • A la suite de Aldrich et Cliff (2003) qui ont montré le rôle envahissant de la famille en matière d’entrepreneuriat, il sera intéressant de cerner dans quelle mesure la cellule familiale est à même d’influencer les comportements d’entrepreneuriat et/ou d’innovation dans l’entreprise familiale, ou via le soutien apporté aux membres de la famille ; Plus largement les questions relatives à l’entrepreneuriat familial sont bienvenues (Bettinelli et alii, 2017, Chabaud et Sammut, 2014, Fayolle et Bégin, 2009, Fayolle et alii, 2015, Randerson et alii, 2016)
  • La question de l’innovation dans les entreprises familiales est importante dans l’agenda de recherche, mais est encore trop peu traitée (Roessl et alii, 2010) ou marquée par certaines incohérences entre les résultats (De Massis et alii, 2013, Urbinati et alii, 2017). Si les recherches se multiplient (Chrisman et alii, 2015, De Massis et alii, 2015), et soulignent la particularité de comportements d’innovation, qu’ils soient qualifiés de prudentiels (Mahmoud-Jouini et Mignon, 2009, Mahmoud-Jouini et al., 2010), articulés à la tradition (De Massis et alii, 2016), ou cernant l’influence de la famille (Kellermanns et alii, 2012, Rutherford et alii, 2008) ou de ses préférences (Miller et alii, 2015), il importe de multiplier les études et programmes de recherche, afin d’étendre et de stabiliser les connaissances.

Le SIG est ouvert à tous les types de contributions, et aux diverses méthodologies. Afin de favoriser un travail en workshop, on invite les auteurs à proposer leur contribution soit sous un format papier en développement (soumission d’un Abstract étendu de 2 pages environ), soit sous un format article (15 pages environ). Les meilleures contributions seront sélectionnées pour soumission à un numéro spécial dans une revue classée.

Vous retrouverez le calendrier et les consignes de soumission dans l’appel à communications global, et sur le site internet de la journée : www.abbegregoireinnovation.com

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Special Interest Group Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Family Business

Organised by Didier Chabaud (IAE Paris) et Miruna Radu-Lefebvre (Audencia Business School)

 

 

 

The 3rd Abbé Grégoire Innovation Day will be held on April 3-4 2017 in Paris at Le Cnam.

In this context, the Special Interest Group Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Family Business (EIFB) details in this document the expectations for the paper’s submissions related to this topic.

 

If Family Firms are frequently perceived as “managing for the long run” (Miller and Le Breton Miller, 2005), with a long-term orientation or some longevity (Mignon, 2000, Bégin et alii, 2014), it seems important to understand how they cope with entrepreneurship and innovation.

This EIFB SIG will welcome papers that will shed light on the diverse dimensions of the connection between entrepreneurship, innovation, and family firms, and among others:

–           Following Aldrich et Cliff (2003) that emphasize the pervasive role of family in entrepreneurship, it will be useful to delineate the impact of family, and family structures, in matters of entrepreneurship, either in the family business context, or by supporting entrepreneurial/innovating efforts of family members. More generally, studies that will contribute to family entrepreneurship are welcome (Bettinelli et alii, 2017, Chabaud et Sammut, 2014, Fayolle et Bégin, 2009, Fayolle et alii, 2015, Randerson et alii, 2016);

–           If the topic of innovation in family firms is of high relevance in the research agenda, we can regret its limited understanding (Roessl et alii, 2010) or some inconclusive results (De Massis et alii, 2013, Urbinati et alii, 2017). Studies are increasing drastically these last years (Chrisman et alii, 2015, De Massis et alii, 2015), and point either some prudential behaviors (Mahmoud-Jouini et Mignon, 2009, Mahmoud-Jouini et al., 2010), discussing the role of tradition (De Massis et alii, 2016), of family preferences (Miller et alii, 2015, Rutherford et alii, 2008) or influence (Kellermanns et alii, 2012). Studies that will enable to extend the knowledge on the specificity of family firms’ behaviors, their contingency factors, governance dimensions, and so on, are welcome.

 

The EIFB SIG is open to all types of papers, and will kindly treat the diverse types of methodologies. In order to promote interaction among participants, authors are invited to submit their contribution either as a work-in-progress paper (submission of an extended Abstract of about 2 pages) or in article format (about 15 pages).

 

All the deadlines and guidelines are in the global Call for papers, and on the conference’s website: www.abbegregoireinnovation.com

Background to Special Issue

Scholars have been calling for research into corporate entrepreneurship (CE) for decades (Guth and Ginsberg, 1990; Schendel and Hofer, 1979). Early contributions to the literature proposed recommendations for introducing entrepreneurial and innovative behaviour into large, complex organizations, while acknowledging that successful applications were the exception rather than the rule (Block and MacMillan, 1993; Kanter, 1984; Pinchot, 1985). Although resistance to innovative behaviour within large organizations can still be found (Vuori and Quy, 2015), evidence now indicates greater acceptance of entrepreneurship by corporate leaders (Clarysse et al., 2011; Czarnitzki et al., 2010; Dess and Lumpkin, 2005; Dunlap-Hinkler et al., 2010; Zahra and Covin, 1995). After resolving initial definitional issues (Sharma and Chrisman, 1999), interest in CE has been growing in strategic management research (Covin and Miles, 2007; Hitt and Ireland, 2000).

McKelvie et al. (2014) proposed that there is a need to increase research on CE strategies in family businesses, offering the following justifications: 1) “strategic management in family businesses differs from non-family businesses based on their systems of governance and needs for family harmony” (p. 340); 2) “family involvement can result in the development of resources unique to family businesses” (p. 340), which can influence CE activities; and 3) “agency problems are thought to influence CE, and family businesses experience different agency problems than non-family businesses” (p. 341). These issues, as well as many others driven by family firm uniqueness, together with family firm dominance across the world, open up fruitful paths for future research.

Early contributions to the family business literature in the 1980s and 1990s were predominantly from consultants as well as based on biographies and autobiographies of business owners. These publications laid frameworks that were mostly unsubstantiated by empirical research but some of them still serve as assumptions for how family businesses should and do operate. One important assumption is that family firms are not as professionally managed as nonfamily businesses (Stewart and Hitt, 2012), suggesting inherent problems in family firms and dysfunctional behaviour that need to be resolved. Contrary to that rather pessimistic view, however, in 2005, Miller and Le Breton Miller published a breakthrough comparison study of family and nonfamily firms in Canada finding superior performance by many family-owned and -managed enterprises. Based on lessons learned from family businesses, those authors were able to formulate recommendations from their research for nonfamily companies. Another disruptive contribution in this regard was a study by Anderson and Reeb, published in 2003, indicating that family-owned firms were more profitable over time than nonfamily corporations. In 2016, a meta-analysis by Duran, Kammerlander, van Essen, and Zellweger revealed that family businesses, and particularly those firms that are managed by later generation family members, are more efficient in their innovation processes leading to higher innovation output as compared to nonfamily firms, despite lower input. Thus, while much attention from scholars continues to be given to problems characterizing family businesses, theories and models are being developed that propose best practices from family businesses that can be applied to other organizations (e.g., König et al., 2013). These and several other highly rigorous contributions, particularly surging from the last decade, have contributed to make family business a research field that fulfils the requirements of top tier management journals, contributes to mainstream management disciplines and even finds ways to give back to business and economics general theories (such as behavioural theory and agency theory) (Gedajlovic et al., 2012; Melin et al., 2014; Sharma, 2010).

The field of CE makes no exception in this respect. So, while we expect a number of contributions to take advantage of CE literature to address the distinctiveness of family firms’ entrepreneurial behaviour in the proposed special issue, we also aim at stimulating contributions for the CE literature in general. That is, research on family business that has the potential to provide insightful suggestions to CE scholars. For example, Minola et al. (2017) provide a developmental perspective to corporate venturing in enterprising families that introduces the concept of norms and attitudes as ‘internal triggers’ of CE. This complements and extends the notion of ‘external triggers’ largely adopted in holistic, process-based models of CE (Kuratko, 2010). In a similar vein, concerns for noneconomic goals (Gomez-Mejia et al., 2011), imprinting of a firm’s legacy (Jaskiewicz et al., 2015; Kammerlander et al., 2015) and stakeholder engagement (Eddleston et al., 2012) have been recently used to explain entrepreneurial behaviour in family firms. They provide insights that are generalizable and customizable also to nonfamily firms. Hence, for the proposed special issue we will also solicit submissions that examine prospective applications from the family firms literature to CE theories, models and practical recommendations (Hoskisson et al., 2011; Teng, 2007; Williams and Lee, 2011).

This special issue seeks to determine the relevance that research findings from studies of CE have for family businesses and the relevance that findings from family business investigations have for CE. While the crossroad of the two fields of research is deemed as promising, it is the reciprocity of the two directions of scholarly contributions that represents the novelty of this special issue. Such area of inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed in management literature, but it has the potential to stimulate the contributions from a broad scholarly community as well as the interest of a quite vast readership. It could also substantially advance our scholarly understanding of both family business behaviour and CE.

There are many interesting questions that could be addressed in the context of family business, with the aim of capturing their distinctiveness and the sources of such distinctiveness, providing conceptual elements that are generalizable to nonfamily businesses (Miller et al., 2016). The following questions would represent illustrative examples of such research endeavours:

  • How are the behavioural antecedents and foundations of CE represented in family and nonfamily firms?
  • How do capabilities and attitudes towards CE evolve and interact over time? How do these patterns relate to the complexity of the family business system?
  • What is the role of social dynamics (such as social exchange, social comparison and social identity processes) in entrepreneurial family firms? How do they affect entrepreneurship-oriented and human resource management practices?
  • How are different types of CE initiatives (e.g., internal vs. external, explorative vs. exploitative) affected by the trade-off of economic and noneconomic goals of family firms?
  • How does CE create value and by which criteria is this assessed in family vs. nonfamily firms?
  • What are the founding conditions of family- and corporate-sponsored new ventures and how do these conditions affect the development of such ventures (e.g., behaviour, performance)?
  • How does a family firm’s embeddedness in a local innovation ecosystem affect CE investment and performance?
  • When, and under which circumstances, does stewardship behaviour induce individuals within an organization to behave entrepreneurially?
  • How and when does psychological ownership emerge and deploy into CE?
  • How do family firms conceive, manage and allocate resources in CE? Which resources are particularly valuable?
  • What family-related factors and contingencies determine the way CE initiatives are operationally managed (e.g., autonomy, delegation, accountability)?
  • How do family firms engage in CE to support the growth of the enterprising family?
  • What are the components of family and organizational culture that are at work in promoting and managing CE initiatives?
  • How does family involvement determine the emergence of CE initiatives in periods of crisis or declining business performance?

There are no universally accepted definitions of either CE or family business. For the special issue, we require authors to specify how they are defining the terms for their studies, whether conceptual or empirical, in order to assist scholars in assessing and in replicating the studies. We will provide guidance to authors by referencing frequently cited articles addressing the terms including Sharma and Chrisman (1999) for CE and Chua et al. (1999) for family business.

Special Issue Workshop

November 2018 at University of Bergamo (Italy) To help authors advance their manuscripts, the proponents of the Special Issue will organize a special issue workshop. Authors of R&R manuscripts will be invited to present their papers and react to their colleagues’ papers during the workshop, but presentation at the workshop will not guarantee acceptance of the paper for publication in JMS. Attending the workshop will not be a precondition for acceptance into the Special Issue.
