Top management team diversity: a systematic review

Top management team diversity: a systematic review
Top management team diversity: a systematic review
Empirical research investigating the impact of top management team (TMT)diversity on executives’ decision making has produced inconclusive results. To synthesize and aggregate the results on the diversity-performance
link, a meta-regression analysis (MRA) is conducted. It integrates more than 200 estimates from 53 empirical studies investigating TMT diversity and its impact on the quality of executives’ decision making as reflected
in corporate performance. The analysis contributes to the literature by theoretically discussing and empirically examining the effects of TMT diversity on corporate performance. Our results do not show a link between TMT
diversity and performance but provide evidence for publication bias. Thus,the findings raise doubts on the impact of TMT diversity on performance.

Abstract

Empirical research investigating the impact of top management team (TMT)diversity on executives’ decision making has produced inconclusive results. To synthesize and aggregate the results on the diversity-performance
link, a meta-regression analysis (MRA) is conducted. It integrates more than 200 estimates from 53 empirical studies investigating TMT diversity and its impact on the quality of executives’ decision making as reflected
in corporate performance. The analysis contributes to the literature by theoretically discussing and empirically examining the effects of TMT diversity on corporate performance. Our results do not show a link between TMT
diversity and performance but provide evidence for publication bias. Thus,the findings raise doubts on the impact of TMT diversity on performance.
