Investigate the question of the legitimacy of a buyerIn the article, presented in track n°3 entitled "Business Transfer", the associate professor in the Strategy and Entrepreneurship department at NEOMA BS, together with Julien DE FREYMAN, professor-researcher at South Champagne Business School and Olivier CULLIERE, a trainer specialised in business creation and takeovers, outline their conceptual research questioning the notion of legitimacy in a context of external SME takeovers.
"Our research questions the possible contribution support systems may play in minimising the risk of failure," explains Sonia BOUSSAGUET. During the academic congress, the jury members were obviously won over by the theoretical exploration initiated by the three researchers, which led to the construction of an analysis grid those involved in the takeover can exploit. "This will allow them to better understand how a business owner's legitimacy is founded. I am particularly proud of this recognition by my scientific community. I would like to express my thanks to Sylvie Sammut, President of the AEI 2019 Congress, and to Jean-Marie Courrent and Frank Lasch, Presidents of the Scientific Council."
