Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Boards of directors have potentially all power, they just need to exercise it.

The board does not have the information that it needs to exercise effective control of a large company. Hell, upper management does not normally have adequate information to exercise effective control of the large company.

The fact that it possesses the formal prerogative to exercise control is about as relevant as the Queen of England's prerogative to appoint the Prime Minister.
