A conceptual model for virtual breeding environments value systems Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • Virtual Breeding Environments (VBEs) represent networks of disperse organisations, that will exploit specific collaboration opportunities through the creation of Virtual Organisations (VOs) supported by information and communication technologies (ICTs). This type of Collaborative Networked Organisation (CNO) should be able to generate different types of values (economical, social, cultural, etc) to its members and stakeholders. In this sense, the definition of a value system represents a useful network management tool for the recognition, measurement and configuration of value generation objects and activities inside the network. This paper presents a conceptual model that integrates the different value generation objects, from the different stakeholders, to describe a VBE value system that supports managerial activities in the network such as value co-creation and performance measurement. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
