What is it about?

An organizing framework is used to develop a typology that sets out the factors that facilitate and constrain entrepreneurship within social enterprises. In addition to providing a planning tool to help in understanding how strategy and process will impact effectiveness, the typology is also a useful diagnostic tool.

Why is it important?
