Dynamic networked organisations

Objective:

To develop models, and demonstrate tools and systems for dynamic networked and virtual organisations, facilitating co-operation and the inter-operation of business processes, the management of large scale and complex business operations and on-line employee consultation. The work is expected to include benchmarking and evaluation of networked organisation models and the development of tools and systems for co-operative planning and scheduling of resources. Work should address in particular the needs of European SMEs as participants in global business networks and their infrastructure requirements, and on new business development. It is expected to contribute to business-led consensus building, for example on codes of practice, the legal framework and interoperability, including in the Global Business Dialogue, and to world-best showcases of new business practice.
