The Role of Resources and Capabilities
Edited by Pramodita Sharma, Philipp Sieger, Robert S. Nason, Ana Cristina Gonzalez L. and Kavil Ramachandran
Transgenerational entrepreneurship, as a discipline, examines the processes, resources and capabilities that allow family enterprises to create social and economic value over time in order to succeed beyond the first generation of business owners.
