EVENTS HIGHLIGHTING THE COOPERATIVE AND MUTUAL SECTOR AND ITS MANY BENEFITS
THE CO-OPERATIVES AND MUTUALS STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (CMSDP)
Host: Australian Institute of Management Western Australia (AIM WA)
The program will focus on the sustainability, performance, and resilience of co-operative and mutual organisations.
The Co-Operatives and Mutuals Strategic Development Program (CMSDP) has been designed by Winthrop Professor Tim Mazzarol and Dr Elena Limnios, recognised experts in the field, following extensive research into the needs of cooperative and mutual organisations. This three-day program applies theory and industry best practice to the organisational realities of the participants.
The crucial need for the CMSDP
While there are many general management and development programs on the market, most do not meet the specific requirements of this sector, which has acknowledged the need for a dedicated course which captures the unique nature of the co-operative enterprise business model.
Many aspects of the way co-operative and mutual enterprises are managed are similar to more conventional businesses. However, there are also many important differences. These relate to areas such as their governance, distribution of share capital and voting rights, human resources, communications, marketing and strategic purpose.
