Abstract:

Both practitioners and scholars agree that organizations that are ready to cope with crisis should be better able to manage it than organizations which are not prepared. As, due to their company characteristics, family businesses are exposed to additional causes of crisis beyond the usual causes all companies face, preparing for crisis is of specific importance to them. Based on empirical investigations, Pedram Faghfouri shows that non-family businesses are more likely to prepare for crisis when compared to family businesses. The author's findings let further suggest that the existence of a supervisory board has a positive effect on the degree of crisis readiness of a family business. Moreover, in family businesses with supervisory boards, the involvement of family members in the top management team seems to have a negative effect on the degree of crisis readiness. Contents· Turnaround Management· Crisis Management in Family Businesses· Empirical Studies· Effect of Family Members in the Top Management Team and the Existence of Supervisory Boards on Early Warning Systems· Differences in the Crisis Readiness of Family and Non-Family BusinessesTarget Groups· Researchers and students in the field of Business Administration with focus on Strategic Management, Crisis Management or Family Businesses.· Managers and experts with focus on Strategy, Crisis Management or Early Warning Systems both in non-family businesses and family businesses. About the AuthorPedram Faghfouri has been a doctoral student at Germany's Wissenschaftliche Hochschule für Unternehmensführung (WHU) - Otto Beisheim School of Management. Today, he works as an Inhouse Consultant for German DAX 30 automobile and motorcycle manufacturer.
