"Women on Boards in Family Firms"Thomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Abstract >Close >In this paper, we examine the heterogeneity in the adoption of new corporate governance norms between family firms and non-family firms in the specific context of induction of women directors onto corporate boards. We do so by exploiting a regulation introduced in 2013 in India that required companies to induct at least one woman director on the board within a year. Using panel data from 1507 publicly listed firms, we find that there is no significant difference in the proportion of women directors between family firms and non-family firms. We further distinguish family firms into stand-alone firms and firms belonging to family-owned business groups and find that women director proportion and the proportion of executive women directors is higher in stand-alone family firms.

"Creating and Sustaining Advantage through Value Appropriation: The Role and Impact of Organizational Mechanisms in Protecting Trade Secrets"Read Abstract >Close >Firms need to protect their proprietary knowledge assets from imitation in order to appropriate rents from them. A significant volume of scholarly work is devoted to legal mechanisms for intellectual property (IP) protection such as patents. However, there is a dearth of work on how firms can protect their knowledge that is not patented, such as valuable knowledge that is not codified, is inchoate, or otherwise does not meet the criteria for patenting. In this paper we explore organizational processes and mechanisms that firms can use to protect such valuable knowledge from imitation. We explore these mechanisms using interview and survey data from captive R&D centers of multinational firms in India, where the weak IP regime places weak barriers to knowledge leakage.
