Abstract

The authors’ goal is to present the applicability of stewardship theory in family business research through case studies. Stewardship theory appeared as a reaction to the weaknesses of the well-known agency theory in the field of mana- gement. The authors present stewardship theory from the viewpoint of family business research. They gathered evidence from interviews in Hungarian family firms that are still under the influence of the founders. Therefore, these are low-complexity family firms. The results show that the elements of stewardship theory are represented clearly in the text. So, the authors recommend this theory as a framework for further qualitative studies of family businesses in Hungary.
