|Title:||Boards of directors and firm performance : is there an expectations gap?||Authors:||Brennan, Niamh||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/2904||Date:||Nov-2006||Abstract:||Reflecting investor expectations, most prior corporate governance research attempts to find a relationship between boards of directors and firm performance. This paper critically examines the premise on which this research is based. An expectations gap approach is applied for the first time to implicit expectations which assume a relationship between firm performance and company boards. An expectations gap has two elements: A reasonableness gap and a performance gap. Seven aspects of boards are identified as leading to a reasonableness gap. Five aspects of boards are identified as leading to a performance gap. The paper concludes by suggesting avenues for empirically testing some of the concepts discussed in this paper.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley-Blackwell||Copyright (published version):||2006 The Author; Journal compilation: 2006 Blackwell Publishing||Keywords:||Boards of directors; Expectations gap; Firm performance||Subject LCSH:||Boards of directors
