报告题目：Are dominant CEOs the saviors of firms in turnaround situations?
This study examines the appointment of dominant CEOs in turnaround situations and its implications for firm strategy and performance. With a sample of firms from the U.S. computer hardware and software industries that experienced CEO succession during the period 1994-2001, we found that poorly performing firms were more likely to appoint dominant CEOs than well-performing firms. However, newly appointed dominant CEOs undertook less strategic change than less dominant CEOs when pre-succession firm performance was poor, and performed no better than less dominant CEOs with regard to post-succession firm performance. The results suggest that a heroic portrait of dominant CEOs in turnaround situations might have impacted the practice of CEO appointment, but it appears to be a myth lacking a solid empirical basis.
