Abstract

This study contributes to the understanding of Corporate Governance term by using content analysis on twenty two definitions, dated from 1992 to 2010. We developed a six-dimensional framework and we calculated the frequency count using Internet search engine. Our results reveal that the more used definitions are the narrower (those of two or three dimensions), which implies that a further study, discussion or extension could act as a cornerstone to a cross-disciplinary dialogue for a broader definition of Corporate Governance.

Keywords: Corporate Governance, analysis, definitions, myth
