Abstract

A further contribution to understanding the implications of knowledge and its context within which it is shared/transferred was presented in Claire Seaman and Stuart Graham’s chapter “Creating Competitive Advantage in Scottish Family Businesses: Managing, Sharing and Transferring the Knowledge”. This chapter considered both the role that knowledge transfer may have in family businesses and the different manners in which knowledge transfer may take place within this diverse environment. The economic, social and community importance of family businesses within Scotland was considered, alongside the different manner in which family businesses commonly operate and the implications for knowledge transfer. Seaman and Graham identified the importance of knowledge transfer in the creation of competitive advantage within a family business environment, and highlight the need for further research both to support the ongoing development of a strategy for family businesses in Scotland and to facilitate future development of high quality knowledge transfer. They conclude that there is a need to understand knowledge transfer, and the context within which it takes place, as well as its breadth.
