Hi Natalia: Thanks for your good question! If Google Translator is serving me well, it seems like you are asking which of three approaches is most effective in managing the relationship between the business and the family (keeping business information separate from the family; holding family meetings and social events; and providing information about the business to the family).

It seems like different family businesses have different traditions or customs on these issues -- so I am not sure that one can say which of the three would be most effective. I have seen some family businesses which have been successful for 4-5 generations -- and they basically provide the family with very little information. Other family businesses, of course, would experience this lack of information as a great strain -- and they need to provide plenty of information as well as plenty of opportunities for family and social interaction.

So what is the answer to your question? It depends!!

I wonder if there would be cultural differences in response to your question -- that people in Latin America or Spain (who you will be surveying) may answer differently from people in the U.S.
