Summary
Social businesses and non-profit organisations act at the interface of markets and civil societies. Their executives are challenged by issues of social mission and economic rationale. Most of their decisions are influenced by the tensions at this interface which creates a high complexity of practice. Urs Jager's book presents a new concept of social businesses and a framework for mission and strategy-related decision making in this complex context. The author addresses four key questions concerning the management of social businesses. -- What are the challenges to the mission? -- How can the accordance of mission and action be achieved despite the area of tension between social purpose and market rationale? -- How can issues of traditional values be linked with future-oriented strategies and how can decisions by the executive committee be implemented? -- How can the achievements of an organization be assessed?
