Abstract

Before introducing the Agile/Virtual Enterprise organizational model and all the concepts underlying the topic of Agile/Virtual Enterprise implementation and management support, we need to introduce a business requirements analysis to help understanding the actual economical and organizational context we live in, and to justify the emergence of new organisational models. This chapter starts with a brief introduction of the role of enterprises and the market, followed by a characterisation of the actual economic context of strong competition, and the evolution of product life cycle in this context, and concludes with a the identification of the requirements for competitiveness and a business alignment requirements analysis.
