Article #1598 - Innovation in Saudi Family SMEs: The Role of Social Capital and Family Involvement

IRE Vol 17: Issue 1, 2019 (publishing March 31, 2019)

Abstract:
This study examines the influence of family business resources, represented by family involvement in management and social capital, on innovation outputs represented by incremental and radical innovation of products/services and processes. The results from a data set of 259 family firms in Saudi Arabia show that family firms that have a higher degree of family involvement and social capital are more likely to engage in incremental rather than radical innovation. Implications for research and practice are discussed in light of a context emphasizing the value of relationships and family reputation.
