Corporate entrepreneurship in family firms: The role of non-family managers

Professor Josip KotlarGuest speaker: Professor Josip Kotlar

Date: Friday 16 March 2018
Time: 12noon - 1.30pm

About the seminar

In his presentation, Josip Kotlar will explore the application of transaction cost economics to explain the individual-level entrepreneurial behaviour of managers in family firms.

Based on primary data from 296 senior managers, the study reveals a gap in entrepreneurial behaviour between family and non-family managers and identifies factors through which family firms can address this gap, contributing new insights about family firms’ human assets and the role of non-family managers for corporate entrepreneurship in family firms.
