Communication In The Boardroom
Communication is at the core of good governance, yet, because of data constraints, research on boardroom communication is almost nonexistent. The author examines communication in the boardroom using a survey of the entire population of directors and CEOs of publicly-traded firms in Sweden during 2006. The survey contained questions about information exchange, debate, the directors' relationship with management and directors' roles and was linked to firm and director characteristics. The author received responses from 628 directors and CEOs representing all but 12.59% of publicly-traded firms.
