Management summary Research study „Status conflict in family firms: A multilevel conceptual model“

The study presents a theoretical model focused on status conflict in the family firm. The authors identify the main antecedents, mechanisms, and consequences of status conflict on three levels of analysis: individual, family, and firm. The study shows that the family business literature can learn from the conflict literature, but also vice versa, the conflict literature , which has predominantly focussed on the individual- and group-level factors, can borrow from the family business literature, which has primarily been oriented to the group- and firm-level factors.
