Abstract: The objective of this research is to advance the understanding on how the NGOs perceive the dynamics involved in a government-NGO-business tripartite initiative on job creation and how they manage on a day-to-day basis. A qualitative semi-inductive multiple case study approach is adopted with reference to the CSR (corporate social responsibility)/stakeholder management concepts. Fourteen units of organizations from the NGOs, government and businesses participated in the research between June 2004 and May 2005. Main assertions generated on the government-NGO-business tripartite initiative to address common issues include: (1) virtue and value are the basic building blocks for stakeholder management, (2) pressure is present and felt by the NGOs, and (3) opportunities are available to NGOs. The assertions are supported by subordinate propositions: (a) the drive for harmony in the society is part of the virtue and value of NGOs, (b) the concern for the youth as an internal drive is part of the virtue and value of NGOs, (c) NGOs are faced with pressure from the society to participate, (d) NGOs are faced with financial pressure to participate, (e) the possibility of working with businesses is an opportunity to NGOs, and (f) key counterparts in the tripartite initiative are opportunities to NGOs. It is also identified that on a daily basis, NGOs' stakeholder management within the tripartite initiative has three main components: stakeholder dialogue, adjustment of internal management and accepting necessary evil(s).
