Abstract

This paper attempts to introduce to the reader the business model of an 87 year old successful cooperative society in India as an agent of societal change. In the discussion that follows, we discuss the evolution of a community cooperative business model as an alternative to current business models. We explore how a group of workers use existing management principles as well as their own principles to create a sustainable organisation. The democratic and community embeddedness of this cooperative union is explored using in-depth interviews of its key stakeholders as well as insights on secondary data
