In this study, we use a mixed methods research design to investigate how national cultural forces may impede or enhance the positive impact of females’ economic and political empowerment on increasing gender diversity of corporate boards. Using both a longitudinal correlation-based methodology and a configurational approach with fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis, we integrate theoretical mechanisms from gender schema and institutional theories to develop a mid-range theory about how fem...

This study examines the human and relational capital attributes that enable Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) to acquire structural power in Chinese listed firms, and whether gender differences intervene in the attributes that explain this structural power. We show that CEOs with elite education, longer years of education and work experience and more outside directorships are more likely to gain structural power in Chinese listed firms. However, female CEOs are less likely than male CEOs to achiev...

This study examines how governance configurations comprised of board capital, CEO power and the presence of large shareholders are associated with innovation commitment in organizations. We take a configurational perspective, proposing that organizational innovation commitment is contingent upon how interdependent governance attributes associated with monitoring and resource provisioning can either enhance or constrain management’s discretion to invest in research and development (R&D). Using fu...

This study examines the causal complexity of how the effectiveness of board monitoring influences CEO compensation around the world. Previous research drawing from the managerial power theory and ‘increased career risks’ perspective offer alternative arguments for how low and high levels of effective monitoring by boards of directors influence CEO compensation. Adopting a configurational approach using fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis, we explore the idea that there are multiple causal...

Abstract This paper explores entrepreneurial activity for men and women across 40 countries. Building on research grounded in social cognitive and institutional theories, we propose a configurational approach to explore how effects of different causal conditions are interdependent in explaining gender specific entrepreneurial activity. Using fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis, we find that no one causal element is sufficient for promoting entrepreneurial activity. Instead micro-level att...

Ownership has been identified as a key mechanism in corporate governance. Agency theory suggests that high levels of ownership provide increased incentive for shareholders to monitor firm management which should lead to better firm performance. However, not every shareholder may have the same inclination and ability to act as an effective firm monitor. It is argued that the largest or dominant shareholder of a firm may have differing incentives to monitor their investment in the firm. This study...

This paper explores differences in entrepreneurial activity for males and females across 40 countries. We build on research grounded in institutional theory and behavioral economics and suggest a configurational approach. In doing so, we draw attention to how effects of different causal conditions leading to high levels of entrepreneurial activity are interdependent, such that the effectiveness of any one factor may be dependent upon the presence or absence of another particular factor. Using fu...
