Abstract:

This study evaluates the performance of eight women's cooperatives, in different countries, toward meeting the two-fold goal of higher economic benefits and increased empowerment for its members. The analysis of these case-studies draws generalizations concerning constraints, administrative strategies, and organizational procedures for effective cooperatives. This comparisons between the organizations reveal some factors which are critical to successful outcomes. Creative solutions by individual cooperatives provide insights into strategic management innovations. The study suggests a means to predict the success of cooperatives through an analysis of their organizational structures. Emerging concerns within the framework have been identified as member participation, political linkages, doctrine of the organization, management skills, and resource linkages.
