Since the 21st century, with the continuous strengthening of the trend of business socialization, more and more organizations seek to realize multiple mixing across organizational boundaries, value boundaries and stakeholder boundaries. Focusing on the Chinese situation, from the external macro strategic environment of organizations, the strategic orientation that has an important impact on the trend of commercial socialization is the common prosperity strategy under high-quality development. The realization of common prosperity puts more emphasis on the power of the third distribution, and the main body of the third distribution lies in micro enterprises. Therefore, it is particularly important to realize the transformation and growth from traditional business organization to hybrid organization based on multi-mission. The existing studies have formed a certain public basic cognition of the legitimacy and value effect of hybrid organizations to a certain extent. However, a hybrid organization is a kaleidoscope of organizations. The generation and transformation mechanisms and paths of different types of hybrid organization forms are very different. The existing studies lack specific subdivision generation research on the multiple forms of hybrid organizations. The research on the classification and generation paradigm of hybrid organizations in this paper, on the one hand, bridges the shortcomings of existing research on the research problems such as where hybrid organizations come from and how to grow, and matches different generation strategies with different types of hybrid organizations at the practical level, so as to provide diversified operation scheme references for the generation and transformation of hybrid organizations under the guidance of sustainable development of organizations. Based on the research methods of literature induction and logical deduction, this paper firstly combs out the multiple definition perspectives of hybrid organization: transaction cost, public management, organizational mission, institutional logic and organizational value. Further, based on the hybrid organizations classification models such as organization spectrum model, zoo model and welfare triangle model, this paper conceives the paradigm panorama of hybrid organization generation based on the combination of “generation mode - generation mechanism - hybrid degree”, and considers that the hybrid organization is in a certain range of area, but the determination of the boundary of this area depends on the difference of hybrid degree. Finally, this paper puts forward 11 paths for the generation of hybrid organizations.
