Corporate governance over the years has become an issue of global concern due to the 2008 economic crisis and several financial scandals and corporate failures. This has drawn the attention of policy makers, researchers, investors and regulatory institutions. Moreover, the most significant mechanism of corporate governance is board of directors. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to review previous studies that examine the relationship between board attributes and firm performance, and to identify possible literature gaps. For the purpose of this review, related materials were being gathered from Emerald management e-Journals and Research Gate database. The paper synthesizes empirical findings on the relationship between selected dimensions of board attributes and firm performance. The paper identifies shortcoming of past studies and concluded by offering some avenues for future researches in this promising area of empirical research.
