Readiness for collaboration assessment approach in collaborative networked organisations Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • Collaboration is essential to develop successful Collaborative Networked Organizations (CNOs). In order to know if an organization is ready and has the needed characteristics for collaborate and participate in a CNO, either a Virtual Breeding Environment (VBE) or a Virtual Organization (VO), a set of specific elements should be evaluated. These evaluation elements are referred as Readiness for Collaboration Assessments and are the main topic of this paper. Main elements that should be considered in these assessments, especially for an organization that wants to become a VBE member are presented as a first approach that can be implemented in different Virtual Breeding Environments. © 2008 International Federation for Information Processing.
