Research based on a series of interviews, which first took place in 1988, with directors who lead some of the UK’s largest listed companies, including Lloyds Banking Group, Marks & Spencer, and Prudential. The research spans a period of significant change for British business, predating the first code of governance practice for UK companies, through to the present global economic crisis.
