Diversification as a strategy of sustainable development of agricultural enterprises

Tetiana Ponedilchuk, Tamara Prykhodko


Introduction. Family entrepreneurship is a specific branch of scientific research, since economic relations in it are closely interconnected with socio-psychological relations. The main subject is the family as a social community formed by ties of kinship, parentage, and marriage.

The domestic experience of family entrepreneurship is characterized by significant historical gaps, which are affected by periodic losses of both historical and social experience of its development. A natural consequence of these gaps are the problems faced by the modern economy in restoring the institution of family entrepreneurship.

Goal. Based on the generalization of the scientists' research, propose an author's approach to the formation of the theoretical foundations of the functioning of family business as a special form of entrepreneurship.

Method (methodology). The theoretical basis of the study was the scientific works of domestic and foreign scientists in the field of formation of the organizational and economic management mechanism of family business enterprises. The methodological basis of the research is the fundamental provisions of economic theory and a set of special and general scientific methods of scientific research.

The results. The author's approach to the interpretation of the concept of "family enterprise" as a micro-enterprise in which members of the same family work and participate in ownership and management is proposed.
