Book Summary
This new book explains how, in the 21st century, self-help enterprise (SHEs) need to be run so that they achieve their purpose and meet the real needs of their members. It specifies the model of enterprise required, sets-out the systems and the culture needed to ensure that they are fully capable of achieving their purpose. The book doesn’t advocate doctrinaire approaches, instead, supplies the essential concepts and tools needed to transform how SHEs are organized and managed. The intention is to help leaders think-through the issues involved so that they can make better decisions.

Without the essential method of organization and the systems required, it’s highly unlikely that even the most enthusiastic leaders will make a success of their enterprises. The model of enterprise set out in the book takes account of centuries of international know-how, identifying ‘foundation practices’ that sustain this form of enterprise, which is designed to ensure self-help enterprises focus on achieving their real purpose and consistently operate in the best interest of their members. The book also explains why individuals, communities, and nations need SHEs if they are to thrive in today’s world, and what specifies what policy-makers, community-developers and academics can do to help grow and sustain them.
