ROMAN CASTILLO, RUTH ESPERANZA. UNA PERSPECTIVA HETERODOXA SUGERIDA PARA EL ESTUDIO DE LAS EMPRESAS FAMILIARES EN COLOMBIA. estud.gerenc. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.112, pp. 101-126. ISSN 0123-5923.
A suggested heterodox perspective for the study of family-owned businesses in Colombia This paper identifies some orthodox trends in national research on this subject and a set of heterodox approaches used by Anglo-Saxon researchers based on the review of secondary sources such as books, articles, and graduation projects for the purpose of encouraging a reflection and an assessment. The results of this review allowed determining that orthodox theories have had a significant dissemination among Colombian researchers and students. Heterodox approaches, on the contrary, are less well-known and less frequently used. It proposes conducting an in-depth review of this set of recent theories and constructs and evaluating their applicability to achieve an understanding of the idiosyncrasy of family-owned businesses in Colombia as an alternative current of national research.
