Paper ID: ATST-70310028
Pages: 6 - 9
Abstract: To characterize the scale-free characteristics of corporate governance structure quantitatively, the concept of corporate governance structure entropy is proposed and defined. The explanations on "manager control" and "shared governance" in terms of the corporate governance structure entropy are given. An example is provided to validate the method in terms of such entropy.
