Family Business Through Darwin's Theory of Species
The purpose of this book is to explore with the reader whether Darwin's theory of evolution is a valuable metaphor for family business continuity. Is there, possibly, a 'family business biology'? Do Darwin's concepts of struggle for life, adaptation, variation, mutation, natural selection, procreation and inheritance provide helpful insights for family business owners?
