3 Working Papers Tell Why & How
Can Increase Effectiveness
These working papers, generated from one of Melos' early research initiatives, offer a different way of thinking about MBOs.
They provide critical insight why these distinctive organizations differ from for-profit and other nonprofit institutions.
They explain why existing management techniques fail to deliver desired results. And suggest why - in light of the findings revealed in Special Interest Society - a new approach for understanding MBOs is needed. It begins with the realization that since these organizations are different, a framework must be established that more effectively defines their existence, emergence and development.
Special Interest Society introduces a theoretical framework. These papers further the discussion by offering a complementary functional framework for their operations. And as a result introduces a new paradigm that will positively impact member engagement: the relation-centered management model.
