PPT C2BE Guide v.2.5 1/4/08 23 Key Features in Mondragon Success * Fr. Arizmendiarrieta’s grand vision (beginning with individual dignity) of the future & his influence over both students & disciples when putting his ideas into practice Personal nature of the co-operatives - people are given priority over capital. This results in a high level of worker involvement in the company, through direct participation in both the capital and the management - creating a positive atmosphere of consensus and collaboration. A decidedly business-like approach to the co-operative phenomenon, in which company profitability and planned, rigorous and demanding management efficiency are seen as basic principles. Re-investment of practically all resources generated. Ongoing adaptation to the changes taking place in the environment. Creation of efficient inter-cooperation instruments: in finance, social welfare, innovation, R&D, co-ordinated job management & situations of crisis. Highest level of importance attached to training, both formal education at MCC University Faculties and Professional Schools, Lifelong Training linked to professional refresher courses and advanced courses. * This material is adapted from the FAQ section of the Mondragon Cooperative Corporation website
