Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design

Making CommunitySense

On October 28, I presented my paper “Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design&# at the Community Informatics Research Network 2010 Conference (CIRN 2010) in Prato, Italy. Activation of collaborative communities is hampered by the communicative fragmentation that is at least partially caused by their distributed tool systems. We examine the role of domain, conversation, and functionality roles in modelling community activation.

Re-Thinking Follow Models Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Introducing literate modeling

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

Organizational modeling has much in common with programming. If you create or ask for organizational models in any one of a number of text-based systems, you likely realize that. To that end, I've been exploring text-based modeling and simulation for the last few years. Recently I've begun to merge the ideas of literate programming and organizational modeling into what you might call literate modeling. Of course, you can document normal models extensively, too.

Tutors also need to decide whether the collaborative groups will be self-selected or whether students will be put into groups by the tutor.

Collaboration: It's Not About The Tools

Collaborative Thinking

Craig Roth at Gartner (my old boss), has weighed in as well with this post " The Collaboration Spaces vs. Communication Channels Argument Continues ". The key points I was making is that if we continue to look at "collaboration" through the tooling of collaboration, we will always draw incorrect assumptions regarding "collaboration" from the view of its participants. Collaboration is not about the tools. Related blog posts: Collaboration, the long journey.

It also gives me a nudge to do some joining up with guides I’ve written on participation and partnerships , and dig back into some entries on my old blog Designing for Civil Society.
