Chief Executive Officers and their Boards: a Play of Power

Ndifreke Bassey Asuquo, Osasu Obaretin


This study is motivated by the need to understand conceptually issues in Chief Executive Officers dominance.

To achieve this objective, a library research design was employed to review and understand relevant concepts relating to Chief Executive Officers and boards. Issues relating to Chief Executive Officers dominance and rubbers stamp boards were also x-rayed.

The paper concluded from the review that the influence of the Chief Executive Officer on the board can be condensed by reducing board dependency on the Chief Executive Officer while increasing Chief Executive Officer dependency on the board. Also, studies in this area of research are encouraged to provide insight into the effects of Chief Executive Officer-board interaction on organizational outcomes.
