The Relationship Between Boards and Planning in Family Businesses
Management and Entrepreneurship
This study examines relationships between the existence of boards of directors and advisory boards and the use of planning in family businesses. It is argued that both of the primary roles of boards, the governance of a firm's management team for the firm's stakeholders and the provision of valuable business resources to the firm's management team, are significantly related to the use of planning activities in family businesses. The empirical evidence, drawn from a survey of more than 130 family businesses, largely supports the hypotheses. Conclusions and suggestions for future research close the article.
