Abstract: t This research aims to investigate the existence of the alignment between Top management leadership styles (Transformational and Transactional) and the Board of Directors roles (Monitor, Evaluate & Influence and Initiate & Determine) in the manufacturing companies in the Security and Defense industry at the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan due to the lack of previous researches focused on the topic and especially in the developing countries, and due to the lack of researches conducted in general on the research community. It seems to be fertile and worthy of analyzing the relationship between the variables. The survey data was gathered from 7 companies; in order to achieve these objectives, a questionnaire was developed. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) program was used to analyze and test the hypotheses. The findings of the research showed that there is a significant existence of alignment between Top management leadership styles and the board of directors’ roles. The researcher suggests to maintain the current alignment between the top management leadership style and the board of director's roles and if possible develop on it by adding more dimensions.
