What Do CEOs Do? Testing a Model on How CEOs Add Value
MetadataShow full item record
The present study tests the theoretical framework on how CEOs add value proposed by Carrera et al (2006). According to this model, CEOs must manage three main processes for accomplishing their mission of providing continuity to their organizations: Business, Management and Institutional Configuration Processes. This study tests the model through a survey with 270 CEOs, from medium to large Argentine firms and multinational companies within Argentina. Research results backed up the theoretical framework. To a further extent the study evidences differences between CEOs perception of their main concerns and the actual allocation of time they do daily to their tasks. In addition, by sample segmentation (concerning age, experience, capital origin and CEO category), some broad differences among CEOs arose.
