Summary
Despite several false starts, the concept of virtual business is finally coming to fruition. A melding of four critical enablers drives this new reality: social technology, visionary leadership, an increasing recognition of the value of a collaboration culture, plus virtual worlds. This so-called TLC+V (technology, leadership, collaboration, and the virtual) of virtual business has suddenly combined to create exciting and uncharted business opportunities waiting to be harnessed. This book examines four virtual business strategies that are showing unprecedented opportunity. The "any place, any time" strategy focuses on providing high quality service 24/7 by ignoring traditional geographic challenges. The "people know best" strategy harnesses the power of everyday people to create value. The "everyone has a stake" strategy considers the stakeholder view of the organization and guides leaders in tapping this vast store of wisdom. Finally, the "real in the virtual world" strategy offers incredible opportunity for real businesses to sell their wares in the virtual world. Throughout the book, we present a collection of best practices derived from our case studies of real virtual business successes
