Creating a Virtual Culture Through eCollaboration

This paper reviews the literature in relation to virtual organisations and eCollaboration. From this, the authors develop two instruments to measure the espoused readiness of the organisation to collaborate virtually and the actual preparedness to operate virtually. These instruments are validated in an eCollaboration environment to measure the extent of alignment of virtual values and virtual culture. The results can assist organisations to develop a virtual strategy and to measure effective implementation.
