Is the succession phase a threat or opportunity for innovation? And, do family firms sufficiently build on external sources of innovation?
These and other questions were discussed in an interactive (“brain walk”) workshop session, moderated by Prof. Reinhard Prügl, and myself at the Friedrichshafener Familienfrühling 2015 (“FFF”). The FFF is a bi-annual, two-day conference organized by the Zeppelin University, targeted at family business owners and managers. Although quite large in size (roughly 200 participants), the atmosphere was amazingly informa, familiar, and cordial.
