Do problems in project teams explain the influence of family involvement on project management activities? A family-firm perspective

Joanna Sadkowska


In the extant literature, there have been calls for researchers to deeply study the reasons why many projects still fail regardless of employment of reliable project management tools and techniques. Despite the numerous studies dedicated to the role of a project team in the overall success of a project, a relatively small number of papers have been dedicated to exploring the study area of the relationship between project teams and family involvement. The primary objective of this paper is to investigate whether the problems in project teams explain the influence of family involvement on project management activities, as based on the researched enterprises. Using binary logistic regression, Polish family businesses were surveyed. The results of the study indicate that the problems within the work of project teams are a significant factor in modelling the chance that companies will manage projects. This relationship might be additionally intensified by family involvement.
