Antonio Tencati and Laszlo Zsolnai presented their paper “The Collaborative Enterprise” at the international workshop entitled “The Collaborative Enterprise: Creating Values for a Sustainable World” at Bocconi University Milan in 5-6, 2008. The workshop aimed at exploring alternative ways of organizing and doing business to the currently prevailing competitive model. The current management mainstream seems incapable of facing the challenges related to more sustainable patterns of development.
All over the world innovative approaches have been developing with interesting outcomes. Enterprises are seeking to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with all of their stakeholders while trying to produce values for their whole business ecosystem.
