Abstract

We selected all A-share listed companies as a sample. Through the empirical analysis of three consecutive years’ panel data from 2010 to 2013, we validated the U-type relationship between board of directors’ disparity and strategic adjustment of the enterprise, and the moderating role of executive chain network. We found: (1) The impact of disparity on business diversification is U-shaped; (2) The adjustment effect of board network to the relationship between board disparity and corporates’ strategy adjustment is rejected. This paper provides suggestions for the equity adjustment of boards’ ownership structure, and presents evidence that external networks influences enterprises’ strategic decision, thus providing a new theoretical perspective for China to generate a more mature specification for the board of directors ’system.
