Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to study and describe the processes of a community-based area development project and to compare it with a previously developed process map of societal entrepreneurship. The purpose is also to verify the process map.

Methodology/Approach - Observation and participating studies has been conducted at workshops carried out within the development project, the purpose of which is to create societal value. Data concerning the project have been collected, including an interview with the project leader. These data have been analyzed and compared with the previously developed process map, the illustration of the societal entrepreneurship process in order to verify the societal entrepreneurship process and to achieve a deeper understanding of the processes within societal entrepreneurship. 

Findings – The processes, activities and tasks of a community-based area development project are described. It seems as if the main process has been used three times and a model that illustrated this is presented.  The earlier developed process map has been verified.

Value - The description of the area development project can help other communities to plan development projects. The illustration of the societal entrepreneurship process can be valuable for societal entrepreneurs who are planning a societal value initiative in some form. It can also be valuable for decision-makers and stakeholders who can contribute to, are concerned with, or may be affected by societal entrepreneurship.
