Abstract [en]

In focus of this paper are selected characteristics of enterprise boards and their influences on performance in companies located in Gnosjö, one of Sweden’s best known industrial districts. The aim and contribution of this paper are to propose and test a model that reflects how the relationship between board characteristics, administration and company age can have an effect on company performance. Our results show that number of commitments among board members as well as company age are significant for company performance measured with sales and sales per employee. The support of the model proposed is strong and we believe the results have practical as well as theoretical implications.
