Could this work for us?

It is time that we looked at a case study application. Follow the following link to the website of the International System Institute (ISI) , an international group of over 100 researchers and social system design practitioners. Note the key features of page content.

The ISI met the description of a social enterprise in that members shared common values and ideals relating to new ways of approaching and designing the future with communities.

This collective Declaration identifies areas of commitment: compassion, diversity, development and excellence, which are especially important to the ISI for their own work and conversation.

The ISI had been in existence for some years before the Declaration was proposed, so there was already a considerable level of agreement about aims, and core values. The Declaration was initiated through conversation, first in a sub-group, and then within the ISI as a whole. It remains open to change.
