Abstract

This chapter explores determinants of board effectiveness in non-profit organisations. Board effectiveness constitutes an important topic in the non-profit governance literature. Our results show that board chair leadership and the human capital of the board are positively associated with board effectiveness as perceived by board chairs as well as chief executives. In addition, board size is positively associated with board effectiveness in the boundary-spanning role. We conclude by formulating implications for theory and practice.
