In this article, we examine the performance effects of business information technology (IT) alignment in the context of family firms. Using a unique survey-based dataset of 954 European family firms, this study provides empirical support for the prediction that business-IT alignment is associated with family firms’ performance. However, this result is weaker in family firms that prioritize family goals.
