Abstract

The primary objective of this study was to empirically explore the determinants of harmonious family relationships in small and medium-sized family businesses. Data from 640 respondents linked to 116 family businesses were collected and analysed. The results indicate that a significant proportion of the variation in harmonious family relationships was explained by conflict management and the existence of family forums. No practical significant differences could be found between the perceptions of active and inactive family members. Recommendations are offered to utilise the instrument as a diagnostic tool. Practical recommendations are also suggested to improve family relationships in family businesses.
