Abstract [en]

Municipal corporations can be seen as a method of disintegrating

municipal operations, but retaining control through those corporations. We

assume that the municipal influence of the corporation can be described

through the concept of governance strategy. Through a case study of seven

corporations in one Swedish municipality, we found that emphasis was put on

corporate strategy as a governance mechanism and that the board only retained

a latent capacity. Furthermore, financial control and executive compensation

were hardly ever used as governance mechanisms, which led us to formulate

the ‘chamber concert’ hypothesis: the use of governance mechanisms is

influenced by traditions, norms, knowledge and governance needs.
