Mystiken kring styrelsearbete - skillnader i styrelsearbetet i ett litet börsnoterat bolag och ett litet onoterat bolag

Detta är en C-uppsats från Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för företagande och ledning

Sammanfattning: New laws and recommendations within corporate governance during the last years have affected the way board of directors work. The board is said to have and fulfill three roles: a control role, a service role and a strategy role. These roles could be understood by three theoretical theories: the agency theory, the resource dependence theory and the stewardship theory. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether, and if so how, the board work differs between two small firms based on these roles, given that one of the firms is a publicly listed firm and the other is a privately owned firm. Using a qualitative case study as research method we find that the board work differs between the two companies when it comes to these roles. We conclude that this is partly due to the stock exchange listing, but there are also other factors influencing, such as firm size and financial situation, that affects the boards´ prioritization of these roles.
