Abstract: I link agency theory and resource dependence theory with an institutional theory perspective to identify the antecedents of board structure, and the strategic and performance consequences of board structure. I focus on family ownership and business group affiliation as determinants of board structure, which I measure by the presence of independent directors and CEO duality. The dissertation has three essays. Essay one examines the effect of family ownership and business group affiliation on board composition. Essay two examines the growth strategies of firms. I examine the individual and joint effects of board structure, network centrality through board interlocks and ownership structure on firm?s growth strategies. Essay three examines the performance consequences of board structure, network centrality and ownership structure. The empirical analysis is based on a longitudinal sample of 2,689 publicly listed Indian firms over a nine year period from 2001-2009.
