Abstract: "This empirical study examines the management approach of the Cree tallymen in James Bay, northern Quebec and identifies managerial dimensions which have applicability for sustainable business management. In particular, this study emphasizes the importance of ecological-embeddedness as a critical element of sustainable business management. In addition, social-embeddedness is identified as a significant complementary characteristic."
