one of the great myths from the Industrial Revolution is that your organization has to grow into a bulky large organization with many layers if you attract more customers.
In our current time of the Internet, fast bandwidth and smartphones, that is actually no longer the case. Why? You can grow and scale using ICT with the virtual organization as organizational design.
What that is? Here is my definition.
A virtual organisation is an organisational form characterized by the absence of a shared physical space. The organisation members work together through telecommunication. Particularly as a result of the rise of the internet, the feasibility of virtual organisational forms increased sharply.
Formal and informal virtual organizations.
It should be noted here that it can be a formal or an informal virtual organisational form. Many companies became a virtual organisation in 1-day because of local lockdowns and everybody has to start to work from home. And think of all the informal organisational forms of virtual organisations like the groups on LinkedIn, on Facebook or on other social media platforms.
