Virtual Breeding Environment: Working and Sharing Principles

  • Conference paper

Summary

Collaboration is one way to achieve competitiveness in a global market. Virtual Organization Breeding Environments (VBE) motivate the creation of Virtual Organizations (VO) as organizations that respond with high flexibility to rapid changes in market needs. VBEs define (implicit or explicit) main working and sharing principles in order to foster collaboration between members and guarantee long-term benefits. This paper presents the results of a first stage of an action-research effort focused on identify VBE working and sharing principles that will define main elements for a VBE Framework, such as actors, activities, knowledge sharing, organizational structure and culture.
