Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate how social organisations successfully manage institutional complexities caused by competing, often contradicting, social and commercial institutional logics. Specifically, the authors endeavour to analyse the nature of the challenges which social organisations encountered as a result of their core principles contradicting mainstream commercial practices. Past studies have analysed these issues, however, what is missing, is a framework which assesses the challenges and barriers that social organisations can expect to encounter, to give them tools to facilitate their existence and growth. This paper adds to the existing literature on institutional complexities which emerge from contradicting logics. Qualitative case study analysis was used to gain more understanding of underlying institutional logics challenges encountered by social organisations. Assessing four small-medium size successful Swedish social organisations.
