THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GOVERNMENT MEMBERS IN THE JOINT SECTOR CORPORATIONS IN KUWAIT:A FIELD STUDY

Auther : Dr. Salem Marzouk Al-Tuhaih

 

         This study aims at evaluating the role of the government member as a representative of the government through the opinions of the members of the boards of directors of the joint sector in Kuwait.

         This paper is divided into four integrated parts: Identifying the main features of the joint sector, Dividing the joint sector companies (according to the definition given) into homogeneous sub-sectors according to their activities and objectives.  The main goal of the study which is a questionnaire and Interviews with the members of the board of directors to whom the questionnaire was administered.

        The results of the questionnaire show wide variation and non-agreement among the members of the board of directors regarding profit and the annual development rate and the low percentage achieved in promoting national cadre which shows the ineffectiveness of the government members in guiding the board of directors towards achieving this national goal.

        The study also shows the variance in roles between the representative of the government sector and those of the civic sector who assume the financial, technical and commercial roles, and are, therefore, the real decision makers in the company.  It also shows the absence of coordination among the government members as well as an understanding of what every representative should undertake.

        The conclusion recommends that to remedy this situation, it should be emphasized that the member of the board of director representing the government should consider his role as an agent of the owner in a more positive manner so as to enhance his ability to guide the board of directors so as to achieve the basic goals of the joint sector.  This can be achieved through a programmed plan limiting the period required to achieve the aims of this sector and setting standards for selecting the government members in the joint sector corporation, most important of which is that the specialty of the member should be the same as that of the company.
