The dynamic growth of ICT in the last few years has initiated a transition of well-developed and developing supply chains/logistics networks in the direction of an information society. On the basis of this information “order”, a new supply chains called intelligent and electronic has grown. The new approach to supply chain management has caused changes in the logic of enterprise organization and increase the role of cooperation. Knowledge, unique resources and key competences are being brought to the foreground. Increasing competitiveness is forcing a new organizational model characterized by newer and faster alliances created more frequently. These are formed on an international as well as local scale, between different industries, markets, spheres of activity, or individual enterprises and lead to a network-ized organization model. All functions of an organization which are not part of its basic activity and which may be fulfilled more process and cost-effective by other parties are assigned outside.
The aim of this special session is the presentations of the new organizational models which based on networks and virtuality and constitute a response to the changes brought about by the era of the information society.
