VOMI RESEARCH :: | :: Case Studies
We assemble an interdisciplinary Working Group of 12 members to conduct virtual organization leadership case studies on a select number of Global 5000 companies and Governments; in order to address, from a Virtual Organization Leadership standpoint, complex instances of “what is happening and why” in a client’s organization. Virtual Organization Infrastructure Development and Management Solutions recommendation – and implementation assistance – are then provided in order to complete the circle.
The working group’s mandate is carried out over a period of 12 months and published in 2 versions: (1) unclassified: an edited version of the results of the group’s learning, experience, and valuable insights are made available online to VOMI members and stakeholders; (2) classified: complete and confidential results of the group’s findings are made available strictly to the client and members of the working group.
