Design of a stable, flexible virtual organization, represents a new challenge that is imposed not only on managers, but also on researchers from other fields. This paper deals with problems that are characteristic for virtual organizations, introduces concepts on which it's operating is based on, and it suggests principles which one should stick to when projecting them in order to avoid possible problems. The paper pays special attention to the solutions taken over from software engineering, which is primarily related to the use of software patterns that can be applied in the design of virlual organizations. Finally, the paper introduces a general model which takes into consideration all specificities of virtual organization designing, as well as solutions to it.
