This study aims to examine the moderation role of the organizational culture that might impact the effectiveness of corporate governance practices and moderate the relationship between corporate governance practices on corporate performance in technology small and medium enterprises in Egypt. The study assumes that the organizational culture is the incubator for corporate governance, so the readiness of the organizational culture is a key moderator that might support firms to realize the intended benefits of corporate governance practices.
