At Victory TV, it is the first day of a new production, which is about the countryside and headquartered on a farm. The production team of 15 has been called to a meeting with the head of the production, Gudrun, to discuss what they’d be doing. Gudrun has called in the Victory health and safety officer to give a briefing on farm safety. The officer goes over some basics, then begins to talk, for any staff who might be pregnant, about some specific rules around pregnancy on farms.

In a context of institutionalized regulation and academic framing determined by agency theory, we note paradoxes in board governance literature and practice. These paradoxes concern boards’ conflicting roles of monitoring/control, and innovation/strategy-making. We explore directors’ mind-sets about governance on which their resolution of paradoxes and their decisions and actions will be based. We do this by applying discourse analysis to the transcripts of 60 semistructured interviews conducted...
