Abstract

This document is a pre-print of the opening pages of a book from Palgrave providing a critical evaluation of the seminal Cadbury Code and how it developed over the last three decades. It shows how the process of institutionalizing corporate governance brought benefit but also missed opportunities for greater experimentation in board design and compliance, with implications for the ethos of boards.

Keywords: corporate governance, boards, codes of conduct, board design, compliance, ethics, politics, institutionalization
