Succession and conflicts: research propositions about family businesses

Djeimi Angela Leonhardt Neske, Leonardo Alves de Oliveira Casimiro, Ivano Ribeiro


Objective: This paper aims to identify the implications of conflict on a succession process in family business.

Methodology: For the development of this literature review, we based ourselves on the behavioral view of conflict, presenting a set of propositions and a framework for investigations in the field.

Originality: Even with the vast literature on conflict, there is still no complete understanding of its effects on a group or organization. In a family business, the process of succession can intensify conflicts, since it includes the simultaneous relationship between the business and the family, and there is a need for greater understanding of this phenomenon.

Main results: The results suggest that in family organizations, the relationship conflict may be present and negatively impact the succession process. Thus, management models focused on the collaborative view of conflicts can positively reflect the succession planning and the performance of the new management.

Theoretical contributions: As a contribution, we present a series of propositions that provide indications of the effects of conflict on the succession of family businesses, highlighting the importance of a governance system that provides balance to the process.
