November 16, 2015 904

FBR_v26n1_72ppiRGB_150pixWThe December 2015 issue of Family Business Review is now available to read for free for the next 30 days! The issue offers a range of thought provoking articles exploring the different dynamics of family firms.

The lead article, “How Family, Business, and Community Logics Shape Family Firm Behavior and ‘Rules of the Game’ in an Organizational Field,” was authored by Trish Reay, Peter Jaskiewicz, and C.R. (Bob) Hinings. The article explores how family firms are not only influenced by field-level logics, but also influence those logics by taking action that modifies the field to best support their own legitimacy and sustainability. You can read the abstract here:

The relationships between family firms and their institutional contexts are critical to family firm legitimacy and sustainability. However, we still know little about how these relationships influence firm behavior. We draw on the institutional literature—institutional logics in particular—to investigate the behavior of different types of wineries within the Okanagan region in Western Canada. We analyze how family, business, and community logics guide firm behavior, and how different combinations of logics lead firms to take action that modifies the field to support their own legitimacy and sustainability.

Institutional complexity occurs when the structures, interests, and activities of separate but collaborating organizations—often across national and cultural boundaries—are not well aligned.
