This paper sets out to explore one of the IT-based management approaches—the object-oriented (organic) approach—and to explain how this approach can be adopted to structure and manage the multitude of complex tasks of the virtual organization. Such big organizations need a structure that is fast, reliable, adaptable and deterministic. In addition, these organizations need a structure to allocate resources and maximize their utilization in a way that avoids deadlock and priority inversion. This paper will not only present how the organic approach is capable of meeting the virtual organization’s needs, but it will also outline how this approach can be applied to the technology sector of Egypt’s Ministry of Transport.
