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).

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 (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

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 October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. 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?

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.

  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before 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)?

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 (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

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 October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. 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?

Special Issue IJEBR

From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring

Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior & Research

The submission portal for this SI will open January 15th 2021

Call for the Special Issue: From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring CALL FOR PAPERS IJEBR

Call for the PDW in Nantes 12 & 13 October 2020: http://entrepreneuriat.com/from-family-entrepreneurship-to-family-entrepreneuring-nantes-12-13-october-2020/

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.

Possible Topics

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • How do 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?
  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before 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 family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How are various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) embedded in the practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How can the doing of (social) identity work within family businesses 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?

Submissions must be original and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers that are suitable for publication in the special issue will be double-blind reviewed as per the IJEBR’s review process guidelines. The editors will base their final acceptance decisions on relevance for the special issue, technical quality, innovative content, and originality of research approaches and results.

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).

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 (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/call_for_papers.htm?id=8869) 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 October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. 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 Nantes over two full days, October 12-13, 2020. The workshop will include keynote lectures, reading workshops and paper development sessions.

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).

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).

OVERVIEW OF SYMPOSIUM

Psychologists and sociologists have long recognized the power of identity in shaping individuals’ thoughts and actions (e.g., Tajfel & Turner 1979; Stryker & Serpe, 1982). More recently, management and entrepreneurship researchers have also invoked identity to explain individuals’ cognitions and behaviors in the work place (see Ashforth, Harrison & Corley, 2008 for review). For example, management scholars suggest that identity can influence organizational members’ motivation and task performance (e.g., van Knippenberg, 2000), their turnover intentions (e.g., Mael & Ashforth, 1995; van Dick et al., 2004), commitment (Haslam et al., 2006), as well as their sharing of information (e.g., Tyler, 1999; Grice et al., 2006). Entrepreneurship researchers recognize the power of identity in the entrepreneurial process (e.g., Hoang & Gimeno, 2010; Fauchart & Gruber, 2011; Navis & Glynn, 2011; Powell & Baker, 2014). To illustrate, Fauchart and Gruber (2011) found that founders1’ social identities shape their markets in which entrepreneurs operate, as well as the resources they leverage to bring their ideas to fruition. Similarly, Cardon and colleagues (2009) argued that founders’ self-defining roles influence how they create their businesses; and Powell and Baker (2014) cast identity as central even to how entrepreneurs respond to adversity.
Issues of identity are especially relevant in the context of family businesses – organizations “held by a dominant coalition controlled by members of the same family or a small number of families in a manner that is potentially sustainable across generations of the family or families” (Chua, Chrisman, & Sharma, 1999). Notably, unlike other types of entrepreneurial ventures, family-run enterprises generally revolve around multiple, intersecting, personal and work-related identities held by members both individually and, more collectively, at the level of the family and of the business (Shepherd & Haynie, 2009).
On the one hand, entrepreneurship and family business researchers indicate that such identities are very important as they anchor the business, but that they also constitute a central source of conflict among family members (Shepherd & Haynie, 2009). On the other hand, identity scholars (e.g., Pratt & Foreman, 2000) suggest that individuals can find productive ways to manage multiple salient conflicting identities. However, the dearth of empirical research in this specific domain – that is, identity in/around family businesses, makes it unclear how and why family members might differentially manage their multiple identities, and with what possible implications for their well-being, and their family firms.
Unique in family businesses or in entrepreneurial families – terms we use here to denote both mature multi-generational family enterprises, as well as nascent family-run organizations based on kinship and/or on socially constructed family-like relationships – is the chronological ordering and interdependence of multiple salient identities. Indeed, in most cases, one’s membership in, and role as a family member precedes one’s membership in and role as a member of the business. Further, expectations around family role/membership often influence those of role/membership in the business (e.g., Rothbard, 2001; Rothbard & Edwards, 2003; Shepherd & Haynie, 2009). Taken together, these characteristics of entrepreneurial families make them an ideal site to explore issues of identity, including its construction and upkeep, as well as multiple identity management strategies (e.g., Pratt & Foreman, 2000).
Indeed, scholars have pleaded for additional research in this area. Specifically, they have invited methodological plurality, including the deployment of qualitative and interdisciplinary research (e.g., De Massis & Kotlar, 2014; Chrisman et al., 2008), and more specifically “different extensions or applications of grounded theory and intensive qualitative research such as ethnography.” (Velasco, Garcia, & Parra, 2013: 46)
Each one of the five papers in this symposium allows us to explore different facets of identity in/around entrepreneurial families, to consider new influences, mechanisms, and understandings of identity alongside family, and ultimately to raise new questions for future research. In particular, the first and last presentations by Crosina and Nordqvist examine the dynamic formation and maintenance of identity in the context of a newly formed, and in that of a more mature, family business. The second presentation by Elsbach and Pieper explores motives for invoking identity as basis for self-definition in family firms. More specifically, it provides a conceptual framework to understand why family members may identify with their family firm, and with what consequences. The third presentation by Mathias and Trent explores a different side of identification in entrepreneurial families, unveiling various loci of identification among Amish entrepreneurs. In doing so, Mathias and Trent expand traditional understandings of “family” beyond kinship, to encompass “family” as socially constructed. Finally, Radu-Lefebvre and colleagues address issues of succession and identity in multi-generational organizations, suggesting innovative ways to surface the paradox of preserving the past while innovating for the future.
More specifically, in the first presentation, Crosina shares preliminary findings from an ongoing, longitudinal, field study that explores the formation of a family business. Through a combination of data from MediaCo and its three co-founders, she theorizes the dynamic co-evolution of the organization’s activities and identity. Notably, she finds that MediaCo’s identity emerges in relation to: (1) the types of clients MediaCo secures; (2) the creative work that the company produces; as well as (3) the changing familial dynamics among co-founders.
In the second presentation, Elsbach and Pieper theorize a number of different psychological needs and motives (e.g., for self-esteem, continuity, distinctiveness, belonging) that motivate identification with family firms. Based on a framework of these motives, their specific influence on, as well as outcomes of family firm identification, the authors propose promising avenues for future research.
In the third presentation, Mathias and Trent present preliminary insights from their ongoing qualitative study of Amish entrepreneurs. Among others, they explore the unique social identity of such entrepreneurs, including how the Amish strive to maintain central aspects of their identity (e.g., family, community and craftsmanship) while restricting/rejecting others (e.g., technology).
In the fourth presentation, Radu-Lefebvre and colleagues leverage drawings and accompanying narratives from successors of high-profile French companies that depict the family firm – including its origins, current state, and successors’ vision for the organization’s future. In doing so, they theorize how successors differentially create prospective organizational identities as they manage the paradox of preserving the family legacy while seeking to “evolve and diverge” from the past (Hammond, Pearson & Holt, 2006: 1220).
To conclude, Nordqvist proposes a parallel between identity dynamics in the family context and the Swedish novel The Head of the Firm. Drawing from this novel, the author suggests that the identity of a family entrepreneur morphs in relation to conflicting family, business, societal norms and expectations. In doing so, Nordqvist brings to the fore the dynamic construction of identity (including triggers for identity work) in the context of a family business, and models a novel methodological approach to study identity in family firms.

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.

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 ?

Three years ago, the STEP Project scholars decided to create this conference with the purpose of sharing knowledge, research ideas, insigths and best practices generated through the Project, since its beginnings in 2006. The Boston STEP Conference accomplished this goal and also became an excellent opportunity to start research collaborations, get feedback and increase our networking opportunities.

As in the first Conference in Boston in 2016, this Conference welcomes proposals representing original (unpublished) research from any and all members of the STEP community. Proposals addressing any aspect of transgenerational entrepreneurship and familiness, are welcome. Works utilizing data from the STEP global survey or STEP case studies are specifically encouraged, but research utilizing data from all sources is invited. All types of scholarly work is also welcome and encouraged including, but not limited to; qualitative studies, quantitative studies, conceptual works and teaching cases, at different stages of development.

Following the lead of the First Conference, this conference will include several opportunities to present and obtain feedback on your research. Scholars of all levels will find value in presenting research at all stages. Traditional paper sessions, poster sessions, round tables and other methods of presenting and sharing scholarly work will all be a part of the conference.

Scholars can benefit from sessions focused on publishing advice and journal choice from experienced editorial board members. Scholars looking to start new collaborative projects will benefit from facilitated brainstorming sessions focused on developing ideas for new collaborative research projects. We look forward to see you in beautiful Cartagena, to share the research efforts of our STEP community.
