Emergence or Virtual Organizations in Kenya
Abstract Different organizations conform to one type or other of virtual organization. The level of conformance varies from one organization to the other (Kurtakko J. et al). This paper assumes one type termed as "virtual operation" (which is defined in the paper) and proceeds to analyze the level of conformance. The goal of this research is to examine how business entities in Kenya have adopted to the virtual organization model. This is done through analysis of 30 organizations selected randomly in Nairobi, the business capital. It looks at the level of degree of "virtual-ness" (level of conformance), the drivers for moving towards being virtual, the constraints faced by different organizations in their attempts to embrace this model and also the impact of taking this approach.
