Reading a Family Business Case

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Business book series (BRIEFSBUSINESS)


In reading a family business case you will see the unique issues faced by entrepreneurs and their family firms. To get the most from these cases you should ask yourself the following questions: What is the situational context of the case? Who are the principal players? Who do I identify within the case? What are the pertinent facts in case? Have I looked closely at the exhibits? What concepts about family business and management in general should apply to this case? Does this case represent a situation that I might face?
