Corporate Governance als Erfolgsfaktor? (Corporate Governance as a Factor of Success?)


Author Info

    Die Annahme der positiven Wirkung einer „guten“ Corporate Governance auf den Unternehmenserfolg ist ein Grund für die grosse Aufmerksamkeit für dieses Themengebiet. In diesem Beitrag wird der Stand der Forschung zur Erfolgswirkung der Corporate Governance aufgearbeitet. Als Ergebnis laesst sich weder ein eindeutig positiver noch ein eindeutig negativer Effekt feststellen. Als Gruende für die Uneinheitlichkeit der Befunde werden methodische Probleme, eine unangemessene theoretische Basis, die Vernachlaessigung institutioneller Komplementaritaeten sowie persoenlicher Merkmale und Entscheidungsprozesse diskutiert. Eine weitere Ursache wird in der Ueberschaetzung der Bedeutung struktureller Merkmale der Corporate Governance vermutet. In ausdifferenzierten und entwickelten Systemen sind die Unterschiede zu gering, um sich deutlich auf den Unternehmenserfolg auszuwirken.
