Effect of Board Knowledge Capital on Organizational Performance of Listed Companies in Nigeria


The study investigated the effect of board knowledge capital on organizational performance in Nigeria. The study, anchored on the Resource Dependence Theory, adopted the ex post facto research design and obtained relevant data from financial statements of sampled manufacturing companies for the period 2012 to 2021.  Findings of the study indicated that board educational qualification, and board work experience have a positive and significant positive effect on organizational performance. The study further revealed that board financial literacy and board international experience have positive but not significant effect on organisational performance of listed manufacturing companies in Nigeria. The study concludes that board knowledge capital influences organizational performance of listed manufacturing companies in Nigeria and recommends amongst others that shareholders who have been saddled with the primary responsibility of selecting board of directors must focus on a more comprehensive board selection process that prioritizes educational qualifications and relevant experience.
