Moving from the recent call for studies that link ethics and strategic decision making and from a lack of academic research that connects firm growth to stakeholder management, we adopt a case study research to contribute to advancing theory on this topic by focusing on five Italian, family-owned firms that reached a leadership position or, at least, climbed into their industry rankings over a long time span. Following a mid-range, theory building approach, we develop a theoretical model showing that outperforming competitors rests upon: (i) a idiosyncratic and sustainable growth process; (ii) a hierarchical model of stakeholder management; and (iii) an entrepreneurial value system that bridges both of them into an integrated corporate strategy.

Abstract

Moving from the recent call for studies that link ethics and strategic decision making and from a lack of academic research that connects firm growth to stakeholder management, we adopt a case study research to contribute to advancing theory on this topic by focusing on five Italian, family-owned firms that reached a leadership position or, at least, climbed into their industry rankings over a long time span. Following a mid-range, theory building approach, we develop a theoretical model showing that outperforming competitors rests upon: (i) a idiosyncratic and sustainable growth process; (ii) a hierarchical model of stakeholder management; and (iii) an entrepreneurial value system that bridges both of them into an integrated corporate strategy.
