Abstract Previous research has been done to look at a variety of issues relating to board of directors. Although this research as been relatively comprehensive, there are certain aspects of corporate governance that need further analysis. The goal of this thesis was to determine the level of board involvement during unstable and stable conditions. Unstable conditions can include financial, stock option, employee, or any other type of issue that can negatively impact a firm. The hypothesis is that as a firm heads towards instability, the board will become markedly more involved in the company's activities. A qualitative method of research was employed, with five interviews of prominent members of the business world used as the means of securing data. Results from the data show that in these five detailed cases, further board involvement resulted during times of instability.
