Corporate boards have gained remarkable significance over the past few years due to the efforts
of various scholars who explored the positives of corporate boards in the context of governance
of companies. This paper investigates the effectiveness of corporate boards in stimulating corporate governance,
generating shareholder value and examining physiognomies that affect good governance practices. The intention
is to explore: how principles of corporate governance can be stimulated to be more effective and efficient; what
attributes of corporate governance may influence the performance
of corporate boards for satisfying the shareholder expectations. The
methodology used for this paper is qualitative and employs an
inductive approach along with exploratory and analytical
philosophy. The findings of this paper emphasize the fair
appointment process for directors and to increase the number of
external directors in corporate boards; so that the significant issues
of companies could be discussed properly and finalized timely.
