Abstract

The aim of this paper is theory development of R&D theory and Quality of Government theory in family business through researching on Chinese listed industrial family firm (FF) to find out: firstly, how FF governance influence on R&D intensity through making a distinction from two dimensions of the Family Firm (FF): Family Control (FC) (Founder Chairman), and Family Management (FM) (Family CEO); and secondly, how Quality of Government (QOG) influence R&D intensity; in addition, this study also focuses on the moderating influence of QOG on the relationship between FF governance and R&D intensity. In the whole research, we observe the Family Firm Governance by distinguishing founder, and other family members. We wish to contribute to bridging the current gap in the literature on the cross-sectional effects of QOG and FF’s governance structure on FF’s R&D intensity. Therefore, the current study addresses the perception of government guidance on initiative and efficiency measurement of FFs’ R&D intensity.
