Title: Collaboration Engineering Methodology: Horizontal Extension to Accommodate Project and Program Concerns

Abstract: A Collaboration Engineering Methodology (CEM) comprises a set of defined, standardized, documented, and discoverable objectives, deliverables, key actions, tools/templates, principles and policies for establishing effective, efficient, satisfying collaborative work practices for high-value organizational tasks. First-generation CEMs address design and development CE solutions. Existing CEMs, though, focus on the design/build phase, but lack the pre-design and post-build elements that are common to methodologies for adjacent disciplines. We use Design Science Research to situate existing design/build CEMs in the larger context of CE programs and projects. We develop and validate an extended CEM in four phases: 1) Opportunity Assessment, 2) Development, 3) Deployment, and 4) Improvement (ODDI). Phase 1 concerns CE portfolio management and CE project planning; Phase 2 encapsulates existing design/build CEMs; Phase 3 concerns roll-out planning, change management, and implementation; Phase 4 concerns continuous optimization of a deployed work practice. The ODDI model advances CE another step towards becoming a fully realized professional practice, but more research is still required to derive a complete a design theory for CE.
