Co-operatives are found in all industry sectors and almost all
countries around the world. However, despite their significant
economic and social contributions, the academic literature has
largely ignored these important businesses. This book is a detailed
examination of the co-operative enterprise business model and the
factors that help to enhance its sustainability and resilience, as
well as those forces that lead to its destruction. The authors
synthesize theories of business model design and strategic and
marketing management to examine the forces that sustain and enhance
co-operative enterprise. Organised into six themes and focussed on
five key research questions, the chapters explore case studies from
around the world and across a wide range of industries and aim to
stimulate debate. This comprehensive work expands upon existing
research whilst introducing new concepts, and will appeal to both
academics and practitioners. It will also interest managers of
co-operative enterprises and those who seek to better understand
this unique type of business.
