This paper discusses the differences between a traditional organization and a virtual organization. Different forms of virtual organizations are described to illustrate the nature of a virtual organization. The concept of a virtual supply chain is proposed and defined as a hybrid of the existing forms of virtual organizations. A virtual supply chain is then explored from an information systems viewpoint. This exploration reveals contextual factors associated with information systems in a virtual supply chain. These issues are further explored to determine how they might be addressed. Finally further research that could be conducted is proposed.
