Publication Date : 01/07/2009
This paper attempts to identify a tentative framework on the factors which may inﬂuence the performance of cooperatives in Malaysia, based on a review of the existing literature. The paper begins with a description of the current status of cooperatives in Malaysia. The literature has highlighted the need for cooperative performance measurement to encompass both fnancial and non fnancial dimensions of performance. Next, the specifc fnancial and non fnancial performance measures commonly used in prior studies are explained. This is followed by a discussion on the factors inﬂuencing the performance or success of cooperatives. Finally, based on the literature reviewed, the paper proposes a tentative framework on the factors inﬂuencing the fnancial and non fnancial performance of cooperatives in Malaysia. Three main factors are proposed as inﬂuencing the fnancial and non fnancial performance of cooperatives and these are referred to as the structural, managerial and membership dimensions.
