  13. 13. Three complimentary approaches: 1.- Objective 2.- Realistic 3.- Critically Constructive 2.- Interpretation from the Social Innovation
  14. 14. OBJECTIVE approach: • The Mondragon group reflects the concern of combining the basic objectives of a business development in capitalist markets with the use of democratic methods in its organization, job creation, promotion of its workers in human and professional terms and commitment to the development of its social environment (Errasti, 2003). • This strategy has reinforced the competitive position of the companies but has produced contradictions between the basic objectives of a business organisation competing in international markets and the historical core principles and values of the Mondragon cooperatives (Errasti, 2003) 2.- Interpretation from the Social Innovation
  15. 15. REALISTIC approach: • We are not some paradise, but rather a family of co-operative enterprises struggling to build a different kind of life around a different way of working. • Nonetheless, given the performance of Spanish capitalism these days – 25% unemployment, a broken banking system, and government-imposed austerity (as if there were no alternative to that either) – Mondragon seems a welcome oasis in a capitalist desert. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jun/24/alternative-capitalism-mondragon 24th June 2012 The Guardian 2.- Interpretation from the Social Innovation
  16. 16. CRITICALLY CONSTRUCTIVE approach: • However, Dr Igor Calzada, in his chapter featured in the International Handbook for Social Innovation on Mondragón, advises innovators in Spain: • To reflect a homegrown approach to social entrepreneurship that steers away from individualist forms imported from abroad and to tend more towards community-inspired approaches as that taken by Mondragón when it was originally established. http://socialenterprise.guardian.co.uk/social-enterprise-network/2013/jan/02/spain-enterpreneurs- economic-enterprise-cooperative 2nd January 2013 The Guardian 2.- Interpretation from the Social Innovation
