The virtual organisation
Automation in Construction 6 (1) (1997) pp. 39-43
A virtual organisation is a geographically dispersed organisation, in which travel for the purpose of exchanging information is minimised. It is also a `hub-and-spokes' model, where the hub is no larger than the spokes, and a multi-site organisation in which the sites are well connected electronically, allowing most of the forms of communication that happen within a single office to be replicated at a distance. The paper also includes: information flows in the construction industry, visions of the future, and further reading.
