Abstract

Collaboration support technologies, including workflow systems and groupware, have been widely adopted by organizations to facilitate collaborative work. How to choose suitable team members for a project is an open research issue in project-related workflow management. Although capabilities and experiences of human agents have been used to form teams and determine their roles in business processes, more research is needed on how to do that formally. In this paper, we show how to profile the capabilities and experiences of human agents based on the analysis of the data dependency structures of tasks, workflow models, and project requirements. A composition approach is also proposed for constructing workflow models based on tasks and the associated team members. © 2012 by the AIS/ICIS Administrative Office All rights reserved.
