Publication in the International Journal on Food System Dynamics - Mindsets in Intra-familial Farm Transfer: Successful Successor and Predecessor Prototypes
Clara Wagner, Stefan Mair und Vera Bitsch have investigated mindsets in the context of family farm succession. Using a grounded theory approach, interviews and group discussions were analyzed. Results based on both data sets present prototypical mindsets of successful predecessors and successors. The mindset construct, which has been developed for this study, was expanded with stakeholders, information flows, and time, according to the results of this study. The findings provide insights into information processing in intra-familial farm succession and the mindsets of successful predecessors and successors. The mindset approach offers a supplementary and valuable perspective on the succession process. It can contribute to early action taking of farming families or consultants.
