Issue 11, August 2011

Here is our next issue of the Family Business news. As always, we have included summary of two articles, one focusing on acquisitions and valuation of family firms vs. non-family firms and the other on entrepreneurial orientation and family growth.

Besides, we have included Professor Ajay Bhalla’s (Professor of Global Innovation Management, Cass Business School, London) interview on family firms. You can view the interviews at the link given.

We would also like to share information from Mr Paul Dietze, Managing Director, International Institute for Family Enterprises (IIFE), Witten/Herdecke University about the upcoming event on “Owners Forum Middle East”, Oman. Details can be viewed under forthcoming events.

Hope you will find them interesting.

As always, I encourage you to send interesting articles which we can consider for inclusion in our forthcoming newsletters.

Best wishes,
