Selection of a virtual organization coordinator
Collaborative Networks (CNs) have created new needs from technological, organizational and human viewpoints in terms of models, methodologies, methods and work techniques, as well as in what concerns the involved resources – mainly the human ones. The modeling example presented in this work analyses the process of searching and selecting an individual to act as coordinator in an environment that results from this new business model. The example is also meant to support decision-making – ‘what to do’ and ‘how to do’ in order to guide an oriented search for individual competences to achieve an adequate management for a Virtual Organization (VO) that is being created or that has recently been created.
