IMPROVING ORGANIZATIONAL COLLABORATION BASED ON DOCUMENT TAGGING CONCEPT

Cláudio Sapateiro, Bruno Vilhena, Pedro Moura

Abstract

During work processes many collaboration structures rely on documents sharing to feed information needs. To this share be effective involved parties have also to share some common understanding of the meanings of the information that is being exchanged. Personal and communities information and knowledge structures are highly implicit and tends to be invisible to others. In this work we propose a classification of the user’s personal electronic assets inspired in the evolving web 2.0 applications concepts: tagging and social bookmarking. By adopting this approach we may profile users/communities knowledge domains and by externalizing this information improve collaboration structures.
