Nuevos directivos para nuevas cooperativas. La figura del empresario social en las cooperativas sociales italianas
AbstractThe development of social co-operation in Italy can be considered not only through traditional interpretation but also by the presence of a special type of manager, namely the “social entrepreneur”, who plays an important role in the development of firms of this kind, and who has helped them become widespread throughout the country. Social entrepreneurs are an innovation in co-operative management, not only for their career development and cultural baggage, but also because of their “style” of management, geared towards the complex system of relationships with the co-operativists, users and persons outside the social co-operative. All these considerations help place social entrepreneurs in a central position, rather than on a superior level, from where they obtain a general view of the organisation’s working. Parallel to this, there is the risk of both capability and power being excessively concentrated, and as such contrasting with the democratic character of the co-operative model.
