Abstract [en]

This paper builds a theoretical contribution to understand what everyday practices are drawn upon to sustain an entrepreneurial orientation in family businesses over time. Although the broader fields of organization theory and strategy have witnessed a ‘practice turn’ in recent years, entrepreneurship and family business research that draws on practice frameworks are still scarce. Everyday practices as organizing context help family members to carry out their jobs, provide them with an understanding of their situation and enhance their innovative potential; the tactical character of everyday practices makes it possible to carve out some maneuvering space in environments regulated by various dominant orders. The everyday life of the family business stimulates unintended or intended dialogical situations between family and non–family members out of which practices emerge and develops. In this paper, we introduce five such practices that prompt an entrepreneurial orientation in the family business: the practice of orchestration, the practice of systemic avoidance, the practice of socializing, the practice of recurring and the practice of tropicalization. Such practices entail recurring performance in order to become habitual accomplishments of particular actions.
