Abstract

Effectiveness in creation process of virtual organizations (VO) is an important condition for the possibility of having truly dynamic VOs, in response to collaboration opportunities in fast changing market contexts. A realistic approach to materialize agility in VO creation is with the assumption of a VO Breeding Environment (VBE); that guarantees the preparedness of its members to quickly get engaged in collaboration processes. A discussion of the process and suggested functionalities towards a VO creation framework and VBEs are presented in this context.
