Abstract

A study of the power and influence of part-time board members in the top 200 UK industrial and commercial firms and the top 50 UK financial institutions is presented. The part-time board members hold multiple roles of either chairman and/or non-executive director of these organizations. The findings are presented around a tripartite model of power and influence. The results indicate that the power and influence of part-time board members is shaped by the simultaneous and interactive effects of a set of structural contextual factors, position and skill in mobilizing a constellation of power sources, and skill and will in converting potential power into actual influence.
