We present a theoretical framework of family ownership as a driver of the heterogeneity (between‐firm differences) and variability (within‐firm differences over time) of absorptive capacity (AC). Building on our analysis of the multiple dimensions of family owner influence on firm behavior and the mechanisms that can shape the firm willingness and ability to acquire, assimilate, transform, and exploit external knowledge, we introduce the concepts of motivation gap and implementation gap to expla...

Abstract Crowdsourcing is a particular form of open innovation (OI) that aims to boost idea-generation in innovation processes. The underlying rationale is that the collective intelligence of a large number of contributors outside the firm’s boundaries increases the likelihood of achieving ‘extreme outcomes’, i.e., high quality ideas with exceptional business potential. Due to the idiosyncrasies that differentiate crowdsourcing from other forms of OI, the findings from prior research on the perf...

In Italy 93% of companies in the private sector are controlled or managed by a family. Furthermore, 43% of business leaders are over the age of 60 and the baby boomers, who founded or inherited the business in the second half of the 20th century, will soon find themselves handing down the business to the millennial generation. This explains why the generational shift plays a crucial role for Italy's future - and more generally for Europe - and its economic development ...
