Cooperative Performance—Its Goals and Measurement

  • Glynn McBride


It would be interesting and perhaps worthwhile for us to stop at this point and give some thought to how, if possible, cooperatives can assure success of their operations. Perhaps we might prepare a paper on the topic, “The Profile of a Successful Cooperative.” We’ve set forth in detail the steps in forming a cooperative after it was determined that there was a need for a cooperative and that it was economically feasible. We then covered areas relating to management, financing, and other aspects in the how section of the book.
