Abstract

This commentary extends the theoretical model developed by Shepherd and Haynie by examining the relationship between the central construct of their model—the family-business meta-identity—and the institutional environment. Using the characteristics of identity (central, distinctive, and enduring) I explain how consideration of institutional pressures may modify predictions in the model.
