Abstract

This article studies innovation in family firms, filling in some gaps in existent literature. The research addresses the idea of shifting leadership, different mechanisms of facilitating communication, and the importance to the firm of technical progress, linking each to innovation. Shifting leadership is addressed through the longitudinal design. Communication mechanisms are monitored through two constructs: scope of information and timeliness of information.Technical progress is included in an environmental uncertainty factor techno economic uncertainty. The findings suggest that linkages between established family firms and innovation may be substantially stronger than currently assumed by many.
