The purpose of this paper is to capture a practitioner's view of board performance of US companies, especially under conditions of role duality. The paper also aims to ascertain the effects of USA governance regulation on US and international corporations.
A qualitative interview case study.
Sarbanes Oxley is unlikely to be repealed. Role duality is likely to continue. Emphasis is on ethical behaviour rather than structural board design in terms of determining the nature of high performing boards.
A single interview needs empirical study to test the findings.
A clear outline of the key issues and challenges forcing USA board directors. The findings from the interview will benefit practitioners.
This paper is totally original.
