Abstract

Virtual Enterprises (VEs) are temporary alliances of enterprises that share a common goal towards responding to a competitive collaboration or business opportunity. VEs need suitable governance principles that can only be achieved if during the VE creation they have been properly defined through a negotiation process. This paper presents the VE from a governance perspective and how fundamental the negotiation process in the VE creation phase can be.
