The Global STEP Booklet : Evidence-based, Practical Insights for Enterprising Families

Philipp Sieger, Robert Nason, Pramodita Sharma & Thomas Zellweger (Eds.)

abstract For the past five years, researchers and practitioners in the Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices (STEP) Project have worked together to explore one common question:
How do family firms create value across generations?
After five years it is time for STEP’s network of 33 partner universities, 125 scholars and more than 75 families to reflect on our answers to this question. This booklet presents the first comprehensive effort to showcase what the global STEP community has discovered regarding the transgenerational success of family firms. Based on the common STEP research purpose and framework, this booklet presents the most interesting research findings of STEP members from around the world. Overall, we find that the major building blocks of our knowledge lie in the entrepreneurial attitudes and family-influenced resources of the firms. These factors contribute greatly to a firm’s entrepreneurial and competitive performance. We explore these unique family capabilities throughout this booklet and learn how values, networks, knowledge, and governance contribute to generation spanning wealth creation
