Thesis

Creative Governance: Board Capital a Resource for Firm Performance

Sherene’s current research involves an exploration of company directors’ human and social capital (board capital); analysing the nature of the relationship between board capital and innovation in Australia’s top 50 firms (ASX 50). The initial stage of the project examined measures of human and social capital and product and process innovation. The current phase of the project includes examination and testing of the identified measures of board capital and constructing a modified composite index for innovation.
