The role of the Chair of the Board
A review of Swedish and international business magazines shows that the work of the Board is undergoing a major change and that expectations regarding external monitoring and strategic renewal are paired with requirements on skills development and the revitalization of working methods. The prime focus of this study is on the role of the Chairperson for firm performance and value creation. The empirical data covers the unique material of the award the Golden Gavel, instituted by Stiftelsen Guldklubban in 2005.
Collaborating partners: Styrelseakademien, Sverige and Stiftelsen Guldklubban. The project is funded by VINNOVA. Project leader: Professor Ingalill Holmberg
