Although the research of Corvinus University shows that the operations and applied management systems of an average family firm are equal to one level smaller company. The key to stepping forward is to accelerate professionalization, which includes hiring experienced non-family managers and vital aspects of developing commercial, logistical, HR, controlling, and IT systems to create the appropriate business culture for the firm. Also, we should not forget to mention managing the relationship between the family and the firm, which is usually the least developed leg of domestic companies’ professionalization.
In the conference, the oganizers turn to those who do it well:
