Australian Centre for Family Business Director Ken Moores and Co-Director Justin Craig, have recently released a new book which provides research insights into the field of family enterprise.
Understanding Family Enterprise: A Book of Readings is a collection of papers that highlights the diversity in family business scholarship and chronicles the distinctive learning experiences of Australian Centre for Family Business researchers.
The book is an ideal resource for business students studying the discipline and also for family business owners/managers who are striving for competitive advantage in the current tight economic situation.
The papers contained within the book are structured in a framework that outlines the researchers’ understanding of the why, the what, and the how by which family firms can achieve a distinct advantage over more widely-held companies.
Specifically, these features that differentiate family controlled businesses from non-family businesses are discussed in terms of their architecture, governance, entrepreneurship and stewardship.
Published by Bond University Press, the book is available at the Bond University bookshop and also online through Australian Book Group.
