by Nareatha L. Studdard, Roger Darby
International Journal of Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation (IJSEI), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2011

Abstract: This theoretical paper highlights the dearth of research conducted on the management strategies utilised by Social Entrepreneurial (SE) organisations. It addresses the question of how does the mission of an SE organisation affect its strategy and resource management. Three key factors are posited, which will help determine the best strategic methods for the SE firm to attain its mission. They are financial structure, target markets and location of origin. A model is presented to illustrate and support the identification of the dynamic and the strategic decisions SE organisations need to be aware of when interacting in the marketplace.
