On March 4, 2022, Gibb Dyer gave a talk titled “Why Studying Family Business is Important for Management Scholars: The Family Capital Approach.” The presentation focused on the importance of family business in the world’s economy and how strengthening an owning-family’s “family capital” can lead to positive outcomes for both the family and the business. He also explained how various disciplines in academia (e.g., psychology, sociology, economics) can be used in the study of family businesses. Implications for both family business theory and practice were discussed along with a brief history of the field of family business and key issues in the field that have caught the attention of both academics and practitioners.
