The reader will see that this book is organised differently from any other book on the family business he or she may have read before. It seeks to create a map enabling the reader to know when and why it is important to apply each of the aspects of family business management that have been developed over the last thirty years. Our interest is focused on offering a road map for senior managers and business-owning families in order to help them define where they stand, where they want to go and how. In Chapter 1 we present the history of family business management since it was first identified as a specific aspect of management. We briefly present the contribution made, in our opinion, by each different tendency, together with its possible limitations. In Chapter 2 we introduce the family business management formula. The purpose of this formula is to show that family businesses differ. We hold that the complexity profile of the family business is a useful and practical way of grasping these differences and defining what kind of management to practise. In this chapter we propose a way to define the structure of the family/business relationship, which comprises a variety of interrelated aspects, both hard and soft. In Chapter 3 we introduce the idea of family business models, that is, the idea that family businesses can be grouped according to type. We describe the set of characteristics of each of these models. In Chapter 4 we address the consequences for management that derive from the various models. The reader will see how each model has its own challenges, and why so many well-intentioned undertakings end in failure. In the annex at the end of the book we present a detailed account of those aspects that we consider should be managed in the family firm. We recommend those families wishing to further develop their family/business relationship structures to use it as a reference document and guide.
