This paper examines the role of trust in a virtual organisation using a process view. Electronic Commerce is used to illustrate the issue of trust building within a business process. The ‘trust as credit’ mentality in Commerce is found more useful than ‘trust as security’ in modeling the dynamic nature of trust building. The paper presents a vision of enabling users to be in better control over the behaviour of ICT systems. To achieve this, we need a model which addresses trust policy and feedback, and makes a distinction between contract and production phases of a business processes.
