Purpose: The goal of this research is to criticize the previous leadership succession model, which was very organized and systematic and thus could not be effectively applied in all business conditions, particularly in uncertain business conditions. As a result, this study proposes a more adaptable leadership succession model for various family business situations, particularly Malay family businesses.
Design/methodology/approach: This study employs an in-depth interview technique with the owners and leaders of an enormous Malay family business in Riau Province, Indonesia’s dominant Malay ethnic group.
Findings: There is a paradox in the unplanned Malay family business model. Their business is bottom-up because potential successors are actively involved in fighting for the company's long-term viability. One of the principal keys to their success is their use of Malay cultural values. Originality: This study develops a leadership succession model for Malay family businesses, other family businesses with a simple management system, and pioneering family businesses.
