Purpose The theoretical aim of this paper is to construct a theoretical framework as a basis for an in-depth study of the board professionals and their characteristics and contributions to its work in boards. The empirical aim of this paper is to investigate what is specific and characteristic of a board professional in terms of characters and contributions, and second, whether a board professional is professional in its work in boards and thus that constitutes a profession.

Methodology The paper is based on a qualitative method with an abductive research approach. The primary data is collected through semi-structured interviews with board professionals. The secondary data is used in the form of legal- and normative writings.

Theory The theoretical chapter presents the most relevant parts of the corporate governance system and the basic theories in corporate governance. These together form the basic of the theoretical framework. In conclusion of the theoretical chapter is given a presentation of the professional theory.

Empirical foundations The empirical data is based on five case studies with board professionals. The results are presented based on the constructed theoretical framework and shows the board professionals specific characters and their contributions to boards.

Conclusion The empirical results show that the constructed theoretical framework needs to be revised to be applicable on board professionals. (Less)

Syfte Uppsatsens teoretiska syfte är att konstruera en teoretisk referensram som underlag till en fördjupad studie om styrelseproffs och deras egenskaper samt bidrag till styrelsearbetet. Uppsatsens empiriska syfte är dels att undersöka vad som är specifikt och utmärkande för ett styrelseproffs i form av egenskaper och bidrag och dels huruvida ett styrelseproffs är professionell i sitt styrelsearbete och därmed utgör en profession.

Metod Uppsatsen bygger på en kvalitativ metod med en abduktiv forskningsansats. Primärdata har samlats in med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer med styrelseproffs. Sekundärdata har använts i form av lag- och normgivande skrifter.

Teori Det teoretiska kapitlet presenterar de, för uppsatsen, relevanta delarna i corporate governance systemet och grundläggande teorier inom bolagsstyrning. Dessa ligger till grund för den konstruerade teoretiska referensramen. Avslutningsvis ges, i det teoretiska kapitlet, en presentation av professionsteorin.

Empiri Empirin grundar sig på fem fallstudier av styrelseproffs. Resultatet presenteras med utgångspunkt i den konstruerade teoretiska referensramen och visar styrelseproffs signifikanta egenskaper och vad de bidrar med till bolags styrelser.

Slutsatser Det empiriska resultatet visar att den konstruerade teoretiska referensramen behöver omarbetas för att kunna vara applicerbar på styrelseproffs. (Less)
