In this introduction we observe that the study of social structures and social relationships constitute a common theme among the articles and commentaries contained within this special issue on Theories of Family Enterprise. Individuals and organizations are embedded in complex networks of social organization and exchange. Within business enterprises, familial relationships engender unique goals, governance structures, resources, and outcomes. We discuss these relationships, potential research d...

In this chapter, we highlight and review the most frequently cited articles that have influenced family business research between 2006 and 2013 from the five most commonly adopted theoretical perspectives: agency theory, resource-based view, stewardship theory, socioemotional wealth, and institutional theory. Using citation counts from Google Scholar, we identified 21 articles that covered these perspectives. Our review discusses the contributions of these highly cited articles, particularly in ...

Assessments of family firm effectiveness depend critically on how goals and performance outputs are measured. Similarly, assessments of family firm efficiency depend critically on how performance outputs and resource inputs are measured. We illustrate this by showing that the assessment of performance is affected by how different family firm goal systems are specified. Gaining a better understanding of these fundamental concepts gives family business scholars the rare opportunity to set the rule...

The study of the roles, impact, and challenges associated with nonfamily members in family firms has generated considerable attention in the literature. To gain an appreciation of this body of knowledge, we systematically review 82 articles on nonfamily members in family firms that were published in 34 journals over the past three decades. We synthesize the literature according to three broad, yet overlapping themes: preemployment considerations, employment considerations, and outcomes of nonfam...

Abstract Heterogeneity among family firms has become an important research topic. This special issue of Journal of Business Research contributes to the literature on family firm heterogeneity by specifically focusing on variations in governance. In this introductory article, we suggest that governance—particularly family involvement in firm ownership and management, and decisions concerning human resource practices—is a primary source of family firm heterogeneity. Dimensions of family firm gover...

Governance, along with goals and resources, is a key determinant of the distinctiveness and heterogeneity of family firms. Our introduction discusses formal and informal governance mechanisms that emanate from inside and outside the firm and then reviews, integrates, and extends the contributions to this topic of the six articles and four commentaries in this special issue. Building and reflecting on these contributions, we suggest that although formal governance mechanisms inside family firms h...
