Example text

Compared to mandatory boards, ABs are cheaper, since 9 Other authors like Marshall/Heffes (2003), Carter (2008) or Drew (2012) describe an AB as a kind of marketing-board, which differs from the ‘ordinary’ AB by being considerably bigger, but having fewer meetings, by only containing marketing partners, by having a project team character and by a strong focus on product and service development. Moreover, publications on these customer or supplier ABs are rather anecdotical. Thus, the present thesis explicitly excludes these kind of ABs that are strongly related to marketing issues and it concentrates on corporate governance relevant AB interaction with the top management of companies.

In general, there are two different corporate governance systems applied in different parts of the world. While a one-tier or unitary board is predominant in states such as the US, the United Kingdom and the majority of the European Union states, the two-tier or dual board is used in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands or Denmark among others (Mallin 2010). One-tier systems are characterized by a single board, which includes executive and non-executive members called directors (Mallin 2010). Hence this BOD is in charge of all company activities and each director is working to achieve the same company objectives.

2 Governing boards in one- and two-tier corporate governance systems If the term ‘governing boards’ is used in this study, it shall cover BODs, SBs as well as ABs and thus it is used as umbrella term. Besides the entrepreneurs themselves, governing boards are an additional managing body of a company. In a very simplified way corporate governance refers to the institutions and activities to manage a company and besides governing boards it also refers to power mechanisms, top management teams, management practices and many other fields.
