This chapter outlines the methodological approach for the research on boards of directors, focusing on interviews with individual directors over a broad sample of companies, investors, and stakeholders in the United Kingdom. Case studies of Allied Domecq, British Airports Authority, Burmah Castrol, and Securicor are presented. The chief executive officer, chairman of the board, and executive and non-executive directors are represented in the studies. In addition to interviews, company documentation and secondary material were gathered, including company annual reports, mission statements, policy documents, reserved powers statements, public relations material, analysts' reports, and press cuttings.

Keywords:   boards of directors, research, interviews, United Kingdom, investors, stakeholders, case studies, chief executive officer, non-executive directors
