Family Enterprise in the Asian Pacific: Exploring Transgenerational Entrepreneurship in Family Firms (Editor)


This Book is a compilation of chapters authored by STEP Asia-Pacific partners. These partner-institutions scholars and the families with whom they have worked have interpreted observations around a particular dimension, or in some cases multiple dimensions, of the overall research framework that is common to all in the global STEP project. The chapters, therefore, can be useful in a variety of contexts. Consistent with the STEP philosophy of upholding the highest scholastic integrity, each case is action research based rather than being positioned as what typically be referred to as a teaching case. However, having introduced this caveat, there is ample opportunity and sufficient scope, as will become evident, to use each case to facilitate classroom discussion at undergraduate, graduate, and executive education levels. The purpose pf each of the chapters, therefore, is to broadly interpret a common research question in order to introduce key findings to extend or challenge existing theoretical frames and further the understanding of the uniqueness of the family business context.
