CEO Succession and Shared Leadership: Which factors shape firm performance?

20 April 2023


Questo paper studia l’effetto delle successioni sulle performance delle imprese familiari caratterizzate da leadership collegiale e il ruolo di moderazione svolto dalla presenza del CEO familiare, dal consiglio di amministrazione e dalla dimensione dell’impresa. L’analisi empirica, svolta su un campione di imprese familiari italiane per gli anni 2012-2016, mostra un effetto positivo delle successioni sulle performance delle imprese familiari caratterizzate da leadership collegiale. Tuttavia, questa relazione è negativamente moderata dalla composizione della struttura della leadership collegiale, dalle caratteristiche del consiglio di amministrazione e dalla dimensione dell’impresa.
