Abstract: Purpose Hybridity explores the policymaking system with another logic, business or civil society, and the community endorses the proceedings. Japanese community-based corporations(CBCs)/cooperative corporations (CBCCs) develop business models that meet the multiple needs of various sectors. They have supported economies by providing products with reliable and manageable supply chains to ensure the sustainability of their operations. The Green Fund Group has implemented 31 wind power projects with NPO's for-profit management system. Its success factors include: business model for social change, management system combining non-profit and for-profit activities, integrated function of policymaking and business, and trust-building mechanism of complex social activity and business. This research illustrates the experiences of hybrid organisations with proven track records that adapt to social contexts and multiple layers and operate across institutions. It aims to conceptualise the system of hybridity as a phenomenon, analysing management systems and mechanisms from linguistic data accumulated by Japanese hybrid organisations' practitioners in 2016-2021. Approach & Method The first analysis categorises the practitioners' linguistic data into three codes with different levels of abstraction: words describing individuals, concepts describing the organisation, and meanings in the context of the practitioners' words and actions. The second analysis modularises the behavioural context expressed in the first analysis and describes the phenomena caused by the practitioner's behaviour and the organisation's activities. Finally, hybrid organisations' management structures and mechanisms are conceptualised by illustrating the relationships between those phenomena. We conducted the first-stage face-to-face interviews, asking about practitioners' perceptions of and engagement with their organisations. To validate the results of the first interview, we assessed their projects by the program evaluation and conducted the second-stage interviews. To validate the second-stage interview results, we conducted the third-stage interviews to ask in-depth questions about the characteristics of the group organisation and interpret the meaning of the practitioners' words. Findings As a result of the first analysis, two behavioural contexts emerged for practitioners: communicating a social mission and creating new forms of economy. Furthermore, "Nine Methods of Improving Society" were derived. The second analysis revealed two phenomena: mechanisms for transmitting social missions and mechanisms for creating new regional economic systems. Practitioners' values are linked to the social mission of the group. They recognise existing social challenges, develop projects aligned with communities' wills, and communicate their social mission to organisations and communities using methods that improve society while embedding new economic forms within the existing system. Hybridity forms a mechanism for sharing a social mission with the community, encouraging people to define that social mission and create new businesses themselves. Their management systems and networks are used as tools to open platforms for collaboration. Here, practice and theory, experts and people, and present and future work together without conflict. Implementation Hybridity is a phenomenon revealed by linguistic data analysis, despite its presence, that is unrecognised due to the absence of precise definitions. Hybridity's management system, development processes and approaches provide a futuristic management strategy model for emerging hybrids.
