Given the many forms that a virtual organization might take, a critical first step in becoming virtual is to understand the form of virtual organization that is desired or envisaged. Once the desired form is defined, it is necessary to find out how close to, or distant from, that form the organization currently is, and to develop a strategy for moving from the current to the envisioned form. But, a strategy will only work if the organization has the capabilities necessary for transformation.
