Research talk on post-succession change

Research Talk at GGS

Research Talk at GGS


GGS Heilbronn invited me to speak about “stagnation or revolution?” and the drivers (or barriers!) of family firm change after succession. I presented preliminary findings of a joint research project with Stephanie Querbach and Miriam Bird that empirically investigates post-succession innovation and change in several hundreds of Swiss SMEs. If you are interested in the presentation, send me an e-mail.

Interview on family firm management on YouTube

During the EIASM conference, I was interviewed on family firm management.

The key questions were:

  • How are family firms defined?
  • What are the research challenges regarding family firms?
  • What are the biggest challenges that family firms have to face today?
