    Abstract

    A Virtual Organization (VO) consists of independent organizations
    collaborating for a common goal. Towards the customers and the
    outer world, they are assumed to look and behave as they were a
    single organization. Proper governance principles and operative
    management are needed in order to achieve the objectives. The focus
    is on the enforcement of the collaboration between independent
    partners with their own internal aims and own internal processes and
    management means. The paper presents results and solutions to
    support the management of virtual organizations in a dynamic
    environment.
