Thanks to Anita Campbell's Small Business Trends blog, USA Today has covered some research from Six Disciplines in Jim Hopkin's post "Among most prosperous, five factors in common."
"The vast majority of the nation's 5.9 million small employers are privately owned. They aren't required under regulatory laws to maintain a board of directors, as publicly traded companies must. My hunch is that most small companies don't have advisory boards -- a missed opportunity, apparently, based on the Six Disciplines findings."
