Collaboration Engineering focuses on mission-critical collaborative tasks. A mission-critical task is one that creates substantial value, or that reduces the risk of a substantial loss of value for organizational stakeholders. Collaboration Engineering further focuses on processes for mission-critical tasks that are recurring and must be executed frequently.

Six Patterns of Collaboration

“Defining Key Concepts for Collaboration Engineering” Briggs (2006) http://aisel.aisnet.org/amcis2006/17/

  • Generate

  • Reduce

  • Clarify

  • Organize

  • Evaluate

  • Build Consensus

    • [( )] Evaluate options from [ordered] set { A, B, [or] C }

      • @usernameX: A, B, C because (e.g. [ ] code compiles, [ ] tests pass, [ ] docs look great)

        Relevant Resources with URLs:

      • @usernameY: C, B, A because (e.g. [ ] code compiles, [ ] tests pass, [ ] docs look great)

        Relevant Resources with URLs:

      • @usernameZ: criteria:x = 400, criteria:y = 100, criteria:z = 5

      • [ ] Build Consensus

        • Runoff Voting

          • A = (3+1) = 4

          • B = (2+2) = 4

          • C = (1+3) = 4

        • Weighted Criteria

          • criteria:x = 400

          • criteria:y = 100

          • criteria:z = 5

          • A = {x, y}, B = {y,z}, C = {x,y,z}

          • A = 500, B = 105, C = 505
