Inertia in Cooperative Remodeling
Which organization model is appropriate for a cooperative enterprise depends on the prerequisites in its business environment. When conditions are changing, the firm must adapt itself. The entry of Sweden, Finland, and Austria into the European Union led to radical changes for agricultural cooperation, especially for Swedish cooperatives since agricultural policy was not allowed a transitional period. After two years, Swedish cooperatives have still not adapted their organization model despite poor agricultural profitability. The hindering factors are conservatism among members and difficult institutional conditions with regard to legislation and public opinion.
