Abstract

Partiendo de una muestra de 765 pequeñas y medianas empresas, este artículo presenta un estudio exploratorio de la medida en la que la propiedad familiar incide sobre la orientación estratégica de este tipo de organizaciones. A través de un análisis clúster, se identificaron conglomerados de empresas dentro de la muestra, que se asocian con diferentes grados de desarrollo en sus estrategias de negocio. No obstante, los contrastes de relación planteados no evidenciaron ningún tipo de vinculación significativa entre el carácter familiar y la adscripción de las organizaciones a un cluster determinado. Por ello, la conclusión fundamental que se desprende del trabajo es la no existencia de diferencias entre las pequeñas y medianas empresas familiares y no familiares en cuanto a su orientación estratégica. / Drawing on data obtained from 765 small and medium sized enterprises, this paper explores the extent to which family ownership influences firm’s strategic orientation. Through a cluster analysis, different groups of organizations were identified, defined by the strategic development of their management practices. Nevertheless, the statistical tests developed showed that there was no relationship between family ownership and firm’s adscription to any of the clusters identified. In this sense, data seem to confirm that there are no significant differences between family and non family owned SME to what their strategic management means.
