During the last decades, a number of models is introduced in research, addressing different perspectives of the organizations’ competencies in collaborative networks. This paper introduces the “4C-model”, developed to address competencies of organizations, involved in Virtual organizations Breeding Environments (VBEs), from a new perspective. Design of the 4C-model aims at modeling those characteristics of organizations’ competencies that are directly related to the criteria demanded in collaborative opportunities. As such, the 4C-model directly promotes these organizations for invitation / involvement in potential Virtual Organizations (VOs). The main components in the 4C-model include: Capabilities, Capacities, Costs, and Conspicuities, that constitute the 4C in this model. The paper further illustrates the applicability / validity of this approach to the context of VO creation. The introduced approach for competency-based creation of VOs in this paper also benefits from the introduction of other related concepts, namely “aggregate competency” and “collective competency”.
