GARZON, Diana María; AMAYA, Carmen Alicia and CASTELLANOS D, Óscar. Conceptual and instrumental model of organisational sustainability from evaluating entrepreneurial social tissue. Innovar [online]. 2004, vol.14, n.24, pp. 82-92. ISSN 0121-5051.
Organisations are currently being faced by ever-changing conditions forcing them to adapt themselves to actual market circumstances. This article proposes a conceptual and instrumental model of sustainability, beginning by analysing different conceptions and approaches used for tackling human beings’ reality within organisations from the pertinence of introducing the concept of social entrepreneurial tissue. Field research was done in a group of companies from the Colombian biotechnology sector. A new perspective in administering the human factor is proposed, focused on organisational sustainability. It is based on two main criteria manifesting quantitative and qualitative aspects’ coherency and harmony, centred on analysing the reality experienced by people in organisations today.
