The Impact of Board Dynamics on Shareholder Value Creation

Aristotle’s maxim that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts is alive and well in the boardroom. This report shows that the team dynamics of the board as a whole (not just the sum of their individual qualifications) have a measurable impact on performance. Recent literature on boards suggests directors should work as teams to produce better board outcomes, but few research inquiries have investigated whether boards are actually working as effective teams. This report presents a summary of quantitative research that measures and compares the material effect of collective board performance to individual director performance.
