    Description: Corporate governance literature to date has tended to neglect employees and their impact, particularly at the level of company boards. Moreover, most research relating to boards has adopted a 'black box' approach and a distinctively quantitative methodology. Given these deficits, this paper aims to provide a comprehensive picture of employee voice in major German company boardrooms based on a qualitative analysis of interviews with directors from different board actor groups. It will be shown that board processes in the context of German parity codetermination are akin to political games, in which power structures, handling of information and consensus finding play a decisive role. Moreover, the importance of path dependency to understand and interpret those processes will be highlighted.
    Keywords: employee codetermination; employee voice; supervisory boards; Germany; conflict resolution; large firms; corporate governance; company boardrooms; power structures; information handling; consensus.

    Description: Building on the literature on organizational capacity for change, this study addresses two questions. First, why are some organizations more capable of change than others? Second, are organizations that are better at changing also more successful with their change projects? An analysis of data from a questionnaire given to top management in 134 firms in Germany found that an organization’s capacity for change associates positively with the performance of its change projects. Higher levels of technological turbulence do not strengthen this relationship but weaken it. This study also shows that higher levels of technological turbulence as well as perceived positive previous change experiences are positively associated with an organization’s capacity for change, but higher levels of competitive intensity and the amount of previous change experience are not.

    Description: How have house prices evolved over the long run? This paper presents annual house prices for 14 advanced economies since 1870. We show that real house prices stayed constant from the nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, but rose strongly and with substantial cross-country variation in the second half of the twentieth century. Land prices, not replacement costs, are the key to understanding the trajectory of house prices. Rising land prices explain about 80 percent of the global house price boom that has taken place since World War II. Our findings have implications for the evolution of wealth-to-income ratios, the growth effects of agglomeration, and the price elasticity of housing supply. (JEL C43, N10, N90, R31 )

    Description: Purpose - The article aims to explore the link between corporate crises and decisions about employee participation in the context of the global financial crisis (GFC).Design methodology approach - The authors complement Weick's sensemaking perspective with some distinctions taken from social systems theory. The paper examines the influence of a communicated corporate crisis on decisions regarding employee participation in two German companies over a two-year period immediately following the outbreak of the GFC.Findings - The meaning of a communicated and enacted corporate crisis sets a company in a state of alert and provokes some distinctive reactions. These include an accentuation of a traditional hierarchical style of decision making and an authoritarian leadership style, some distinctive key personnel changes, and a strong orientation towards senior management. Any reforms of immaterial employee participation are rejected and the institutions that represent employees engage in a passive co-management.Practical implications - The authors' findings highlight the importance for companies of introducing a formal crisis management system before a crisis occurs, which provides the chance to safeguard a balance of centralization and decentralization in the decision-making process during crises.Originality value - The study offers some novel insights about the meaning of crisis and of employee participation as well as about how these meanings affect decision-making processes.

    Description: Corporate governance and board research has to date provided a multitude of studies, findings, and data and, hence, made some important contributions to the field of management and organisational behaviour. Nevertheless, relatively little has been said about the topics and aspects that have remained underestimated, neglected, or unexplored in this field. Accordingly, this paper takes a somewhat critical position by questioning such 'blind spots'. Moreover, it reflects on potential opportunities and challenges for further research that may enrich our knowledge and understanding of corporate governance and board phenomena.
    Keywords: corporate governance; board research; theoretical approaches; methods; actors; deficits; boards of directors.
