4 Mitja Jermol © Mitja Jermol NETWORKED ORGANISATIONS Constituted by a variety of entities (e.g. organizations, people, machines) that are:  largely autonomous  geographically distributed  heterogeneous in terms of their: operating environment, culture, social capital and goals These entities collaborate to better achieve common or compatible goals The collaborative interactions are supported by a computer network. Constituted by a variety of entities (e.g. organizations, people, machines) that are:  largely autonomous  geographically distributed  heterogeneous in terms of their: operating environment, culture, social capital and goals These entities collaborate to better achieve common or compatible goals The collaborative interactions are supported by a computer network. Extended enterprises (hierarchical, supplier networks, 1-n relation) Collaborative network organisations (networked, n-m relation) Symbiotic organisations (human/machine symbiosis) Extended enterprises (hierarchical, supplier networks, 1-n relation) Collaborative network organisations (networked, n-m relation) Symbiotic organisations (human/machine symbiosis)

How shall I behave in a NO? What do I benefit from it ? Which tools do I need? Where can I buy them? How do I measure it? So, is this simply a management issue? What about my “life maintenance”?

37 Mitja Jermol © Mitja Jermol WHAT WE UNDERSTAND BY CNO? Constituted by a variety of entities (e.g. organizations and people) that are: largely autonomous geographically distributed heterogeneous in terms of their: operating environment, culture, social capital and goals Nevertheless these entities collaborate to better achieve common or compatible goals The collaborative interactions are supported by a computer network. Constituted by a variety of entities (e.g. organizations and people) that are: largely autonomous geographically distributed heterogeneous in terms of their: operating environment, culture, social capital and goals Nevertheless these entities collaborate to better achieve common or compatible goals The collaborative interactions are supported by a computer network. Unlike other networks, in CNO collaboration is an intentional property that derives from the shared belief that together the network members can achieve goals that would not be possible or would have a higher cost if attempted by them individually Network...
