Not-for-profit Emergent Strategy
Do you think that this concept of strategy shaping is applicable for a not-for-profit organisation?

Emergent Strategy
Hilary Barnard, Member
A significant element of emergent strategy is much more applicable to third sector/not for profits than a heavy emphasis on deliberate strategy. It's a better fit with the limited control these organisations have over their environments.

Emergent Strategy in Public Sector
Jaap de Jonge, Editor
I agree with Hilary, yes, it is certainly applicable. And indeed one might argue that the strategic environment in the public sector is even more complex then that of a commercial firm, due to the more complex external environment, such as the larger number of stakeholders to consider.
So that would mean that in the public or government sector, an emergent view to strategy (policy) formulation would not only be applicable, but even advisable.

Non-profit Emergent Strategy
I don't think it would work because of the limited resources these NFPO's have. Besides value for money's 3 E's would not permit them to be innovative or rather go for the opportunities as they arise in terms of strategy change.

Emergent Strategies in non Profit Organizations
Libardo Ortegon Camacho, Member
Image or people favourness is an everyday result looked for by government directors. They need present results to justify the existence and growth of the organizations they are responsible for. And a compensation for their good results is obtaining more funds from the state or general government, increasing their budgets. So, I see emergent strategies will work and will be a nice preoccupation for organizations and directors of public organizations.
