Abstract/Resumo
The organisational literature privileges objective performance indicators often selected by researchers. There is scarce research on legitimacy challenged hybrid and micro-organisations and on perceived success under exigent conditions. To fill in this gap, the study, conducted among complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) micro-organisations, explores success as a subjective measure originating from managers’ perceptions. For the purpose, it integrates Cognitive Mapping and Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) – a methodological contribution to construct a subjective success framework that can be helpful for contested hybrid micro-organisations. Seven factors emerged, of which human capital is recognised as critical while external factors are considered unimportant.
