New Kellogg Study: Family Business Values and Cognition Study

The Center for Family Enterprises invites current or past MBA students to participate.
While much research has examined the cultural values, personalities, and decision-making styles of key players in dispersedly owned firms, far less is known about family businesses. The John L Ward Center for Family Enterprises at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University is conducting a study examining how key players in family and non-family businesses vary on these important dimensions. Specifically, we are looking for respondents who are members of business-owning families or serve as board members, executives, or advisors for family businesses. We are also interested in responses from family members who are not currently involved with the family business, and from individuals not currently working as advisors to family businesses but hope to do so in the future.
We would like to request your collaboration by answering the following online questionnaire. Answering will take about 15 minutes. Your answers are completely confidential and will be treated with absolute anonymity. The results will only be used for statistical purposes and will be disclosed in aggregate without identifying information. After the processing and analysis of the data obtained, we will prepare a report of results, which we will send to all who responded and voluntarily provided us with their contact information following a link at the end of the survey. We are also planning on inviting those who participated to an event to present the study as a thank you.
