People serving in higher education institutions at an executive level are expected to be a role model for youngsters and have a responsibility in increasing institutional research performance by their active involvement in Research and Publications. Organizational performance depends on individual & team performance. Recently introduced ABC model by Aithal P.S. & Suresh Kumar P.M., has facilitated to calculate individual and institutional annual research index. It is well known that directors in top business schools are reputed, eminent researchers capable of leading the institution through their ability to inspire individuals and teams in the entire institution and capable of enhancing the overall research productivity of the organization. In this paper, we have studied the research contribution of the directors of 33 top Indian business schools by studying their average research productivity for last five years for 2012-2016. The research productivity of the directors/Deans of these 33 top Indian business schools are studied by identifying the number of research papers published, a number of books/edited books published, and the number of book chapters published in an ISBN number books, and a number of business cases published. The research performance of the directors is compared with the annual research performance of their respective institution for the year 2015. The effect of director’s research performance as a role model on institutional performance is also discussed using the postulates of Theory A. It is observed that many directors fail to act as role model due to their failure to reach higher research grade.
