American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2019.94066
Abstract:
Family business is an important part of the national economy and plays an important role in the development of social economy. The iterative process of technology and the new business model make the competition among enterprises increasingly fierce. If enterprises want to succeed in the fierce competition, they must consolidate and develop through innovation. At the same time, the phenomenon of intergenerational succession of Chinese family businesses is becoming more and more common. Recalling the research on intergenerational succession and innovation of family business, the existing research lacks a unified analytical framework, and the research results are scattered, fragmented, and systematic. This has largely restricted the depth of theoretical research in this field. This paper systematically sorts out intergenerational succession and innovation research. It has certain guiding significance for domestic family business succession practice and succession theory research. It will help researchers to better draw on the theoretical results in this field and lay the foundation for follow-up research.

Abstract: Social enterprises have become an inevitable trend of future social development. At present, the development of Chinese social enterprises faces internal and external adversities, and the prospects of the development of social enterprises are not clear. In order to build a good environment for the development of domestic social enterprises, this article fully draws on international experience and combines with Chinas actual conditions, and evaluates the existing standards of certification for civil society enterprises in China from five dimensions: organizational goals, income sources, profit distribution, asset disposal, and profit distribution. On this basis, further proposals are proposed to improve public awareness of social enterprises and lay a practical foundation for future legislative work.
Interpreting social enterprises
Borzaga, Carlo;Depedri, Sara;Galera, Giulia;
Revista de Administra??o (S?o Paulo) , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0080-21072012000300005
Abstract: institutional and organizational variety is increasingly characterizing advanced economic systems. while traditional economic theories have focused almost exclusively on profit-maximizing (i.e., for-profit) enterprises and on publicly-owned organizations, the increasing relevance of non-profit organizations, and especially of social enterprises, requires scientists to reflect on a new comprehensive economic approach for explaining this organizational variety. this paper examines the main limitations of the orthodox and institutional theories and asserts the need for creating and testing a new theoretical framework, which considers the way in which diverse enterprises pursue their goals, the diverse motivations driving actors and organizations, and the different learning patterns and routines within organizations. the new analytical framework proposed in the paper draws upon recent developments in the theories of the firm, mainly of an evolutionary and behavioral kind. the firm is interpreted as a coordination mechanism of economic activity, and one whose objectives need not coincide with profit maximization. on the other hand, economic agents driven by motivational complexity and intrinsic, non-monetary motivation play a crucial role in forming firm activity over and above purely monetary and financial objectives. the new framework is thought to be particularly suitable to correctly interpret the emergence and role of nontraditional organizational and ownership forms that are not driven by the profit motive (non-profit organizations), mainly recognized in the legal forms of cooperative firms, non-profit organizations and social enterprises. a continuum of organizational forms ranging from profit making activities to public benefit activities, and encompassing mutual benefit organizations as its core constituent, is envisaged and discussed.

Working in social enterprises

Abstract: There is much debate in the UK about proposed changes to the National Health Service (NHS) which will lead to a much stronger market orientation for aspects of the service. Although the changes are 'proposed' in the current Government's Department of Health bill (2011) and previous white paper (Department of Health 2010), various initiatives to develop services into new forms of social enterprise were already being implemented under the previous administration, and allied health professionals (AHPs) were being encouraged to establish themselves in these forms of organisation. This editorial will explore some of the issues and the background to this development, particularly with regard to the implications for occupational therapy services.
Succession Planning and Its Impact on the Performance of Small Micro Medium Enterprises within the Manufacturing Sector in Johannesburg  [cached]

International Journal of Business and Management , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v7n9p96
Abstract: Succession planning is a major problem within Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs). The literature shows that although most of these entities are run by their founders or by a small management team and very few such operators have in place proper succession planning. The lack of proper succession planning can have the direct effect of causing the collapse of these businesses especially when key players leave the business upon retirement or in pursuit of other options. The exit or exodus of key stakeholders can make a business vulnerable and diminish its worth as investors will not invest in a business that is not sustainable. Succession planning was identified as one of the most pressing issue for SMME’s within the corporate governance sphere. This was therefore investigated by means of survey that was done in order to take up this study. The intent was to ascertain what the current status is within the manufacturing sector in the Johannesburg region. A combination of qualitative and quantitative methodology was applied to get responses from 15 companies out of a total of 30.The study found that there was a gap between perceived and actual status of succession planning in the SMMEs studied and there is major room for improvement in this area. Further these SMMEs did not put plans in place to groom, train and develop top managers. The study found that there was no preference to recruiting from outside versus developing inside talent in preparation for succession planning. The findings also suggest that most stakeholders agreed that good succession planning can add value to SMME’s and they become more sustainable. It is evident from this study that the manufacturing sector has not changed from those recorded in earlier studies. The conclusion from this study served as a wakeup call to the SMMEs which took part.

Abstract: secondary succession in degraded areas is little studied, especially where long-term observation of evolutionary processes is concerned. the aim of this work was to follow the qualitative and quantitative changes in vegetation throughout the regeneration process after fire in a cerrado with forest physionomy. the area under study is a reserve on cppse-embrapa's farm, s?o carlos region of s?o paulo state, brazil. in 1981, an especially destructive fire eliminated the aerial part of the vegetation and litter. from that time, the vegetation in three permanent quadrats of 2 x 20 m was recorded for twenty years. the results demonstrated the rapid growth of herbs, shrubs, climbers and trees successively, with a great species richness and, after a certain time, a decline in density at a rate similar to the initial recovery. both the soil seed bank and sprouting subterranean organs played important parts in the recovery of the vegetation. three phases were observed in the plant succession: plant growth, followed by intraspecific competition with a reduction in the number of individuals and finally interspecific competition with the disappearance of some species from the quadrats. the different populations behaved similarly and the rise and fall in density of each species over time reflected their ecological role.
