Abstract

This paper presents a study of the Mondragon Cooperative Experience from the point of view of Organisational Engineering. It studies the origins and historical development of the Mondragon experience and its situation within the context of the Basque Country. It focuses on Mondragon’s cooperative ability to inter-cooperate through a set of organisational structures, constantly restructuring and re-inventing these to ensure its viability and promote the development of its environment. The article studies the various stages of its development and the organisational structures that have allowed adaptive support for the experience over time, forming a unique and distinguishable identity
