The organisers of the BAM2014 conference have published all of the conference papers online. If you wish to read a copy of my paper, On the use of critical realism to advance governance research beyond correlations, please click here. The purpose of the paper is twofold: to debate some of the core assumptions and approaches that have been favoured by many corporate governance researchers to date; and to offer an alternative approach to research—one that has the potential to help researchers solve the challenging problem of explaining how boards can influence the achievement of company performance outcomes.
The ideas in the paper form an important foundation stone of my doctoral research, so please feel free to post a reply, or to send an email, if you wish to make any comments about it. I'd welcome the feedback!
Thoughts on corporate purpose, strategy and governance; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
