Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Social entrepreneurship has become a much discussed term in recent years, often in conjunction with the public sector - the idea that entrepreneurship might somehow step in and save the public purse has taken hold in a number of areas. This book introduces and explains the terminology surrounding social enterprise and brings much-needed rigour to proceedings by demonstrating how this can be measured, evaluated and held accountable.

The questions raised in this text are:

What is Social Enterprise and does it work? Is Social Enterprise influenced by geographic and cultural diversity? What motivations and rewards does working for a social enterprise provide? What constitutes an effective evaluation tool?

In order to answer these important questions, contributing authors draw upon academic theories such as 'Critical Appreciative Processes' and employ a mixture of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies focusing on a range of issues from how social enterprises compete against larger, resource-rich firms to evaluating outcomes of work-integration social enterprises. The result is a fascinating summary of current thinking surrounding this topic.
