Disruption in Mission Work: New OBU Research Addresses Sustainable Growth Strategies

Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) releases new published research entitled, ‘Mobilizing Missions in a Disruptive World: International Sports Federation Case Study,’ which provides functional significance in the sustainable growth for today’s non-profit organizations.

The structure of the American business economy has seen the prevalence of various non-profit organizations since the late 1800s. With religious pursuits as one of their main objectives, many such organizations have grown significantly over the years in its course of availability and services. With more such organizations cropping up in various verticals, the competition has also reached its highest pace.

This particular research is a collaborative output of students and professors that highlight the evident challenges of religious non-profit organizations in the  backdrop  of declining climate. The research is extremely crucial for experts and scholars to guide these organizations into adopting sustainable changes in support of climate change and also the dynamic and volatile marketplace. This research goes into the workflow of the international Sports Federation as a case study focusing on political, economic, social, environmental, and legal factors that collectively put the organization in a functional course. The direction of the business is directly dependent on these external factors that are always on the verge of dynamic change.

Even though non-profit, these establishments or organizations are always looking to maintain a strong position in the generic market. When sustainability and market growth come in a confluence of easily adaptable changes, the results are astounding. With a planet that is not only undergoing the wrath of climatic disruption, the other key factors of civilization, society, politics, economy, and culture are also in a constant position of alteration. The research concludes the importance of adopting sustainable changes so that both resources and market growth can lead the entire system into a better and maintainable framework.
