Reviews for Governance in Family Enterprises: Maximising Economic and Emotional Success

'Governance in Family Enterprises is the most comprehensive and practical resource on best practices. The authors appreciate that governance is more art than science, and they bring particularly special insights into governing family offices, family foundations and serial enterprising families. The book is greatly enriched with wonderfully global examples and role models.' - John L. Ward, Clinical Professor of Family Enterprises, Kellogg School of Management, USA 'With over fifty years of experience as researchers and advisors to family enterprises, these authors combine their insights on family and business governance to provide a thought-provoking account of governance systems, how to bring them to life and modify them as they evolve over time. A valuable educational guide for advisors and family members alike!' - Pramodita Sharma, Sanders Professor of Family Business, University of Vermont and Editor, Family Business Review 'This book allows family businesses and their business-owning families to develop their very specific governance and dare to manage crises themselves. An excellent contribution to the world of family businesses.' -Andrea Prym-Bruck, Prym, Germany, founded in 1540, XIX generation
