Abstract

This chapter introduces a classification model that provides an approach to classify collaborative networked organizations. Many models with different names and organizational backgrounds can be found in today’s network literature. From a time perspective, traditional and innovative models provide two classification groups for collaborative networked organizations. In the process of this chapter, models with different names and organizational backgrounds will be introduced. Special attention will be given to the virtual organization. A classification model shows that collaborative networked organizations can be separated by using the body of knowledge and literature currently available. Requirements for the development of virtual organizations and inhibiting factors will be explained, and an organizational environment that supports the development of trust is subject to closer examination. The authors provide an overview regarding network management models. The reader should develop an understanding for critical factors in network relationships and understand essential requirements of networked organizations.
