Academy of Management Review Paper Development Workshop – Advancing theory on enterprising families (and beyond), June 17, 2019 University of Bergamo, Italy. The family business field was initiated upon a strong vision of how family business researchers and practitioners would co-create and share knowledge to better understand the dilemmas and concerns faced by the owners and leaders of family firms. Without trading rigor for relevance, the fast growth of he field has prompted a number of theoretical advancements and perspectives that are applicable to other organizations. These rigorous contributions, in particular within the last fifteen years, indicate that family business research has now reached a development stage where it can contribute and give back to mainstream management and economics disciplines, as well as general theories.
