2 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project2 Agenda My perspective on e-Collaboration The Bentley Invision Project An e-Collaboration design framework Key design principles EC-US collaboration opportunities

3 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project3 What is e-Collaboration?

4 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project4 Interorganizational e-Collaboration The Environment Interorganizational system Organizatio n 1 Organizatio n 2 Organizatio n 3 E-Collaboration/interorganizational system --a virtual unit of analysis comprising parts of multiple organizations engaged in a common endeavor

5 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project5 Bentley Invision Project Year 3 of project with 7 faculty researchers Transdisciplinary team Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Government, Management researchers Other contributors from US, England, India, Australia and Germany Focus on e-Collaborations within multi- organizational case studies

6 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project6 Current Research Five multi-organizational case studies E-health HIPAA and a health data consortium E-prescribing and EMR E-government Emergency response E-procurement E-business Supply chain collaboration Diagramming with BPMNe Cross-case analysis

7 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project7 Invisions High-level Research Questions Why do interorganizational e-Collaborations succeed or fail? How do we define success? e-Collaboration perspective Stakeholder perspectives What design choices would make an e-Collaboration more successful?

8 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project8 Invision Project Framework Environmental Factors Regulations Economy.etc. Organizational Factors Operational complexity IT readiness.etc. e-Collaboration Properties Individual and Collective Outcomes Relational outcomes E-Collaboration Outcomes Adoption Use Intended and unintended effects

9 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project9 e-Collaboration Properties Processparticipants roles & activities Process restructuring, role of intermediaries/consortia Informationnature & quality of information Representation, transparency, standards Application softwarearchitecture, functionality & usability Proprietary vs. open source, interface integration IT Infrastructurecomponents, architecture, flexibility Data location and redundancy, centralized vs. P2P Confidenceparticipant assurance Security, data access rules, authentication, inspection Economicsfinancial costs for participation Pie-sharing agreements, risk sharing, set-up costs, usage fees

10 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project10 Examples of Key e-Collaboration Design Principles Seamless integration with partners systems and business processes Local ownership of data (decision rights) Open-source or royalty-free licensing Non-redundant, decentralized data storage Data and process governance (contracts, legislation, standards) Pie-sharing equity (distribution of costs, benefits, risks) e-Collaboration Properties Process Information Software Infrastructure Confidence Economics

11 13 April 2005© 2005 Bentley Invision Project11 What does this mean for designers of e-collaboration technologies? Design Properties matter All e-Collaborations possess significant enablers /constraints for diffusion and use Stakeholders each have their own definition of success Key benefits differ Timeliness Accuracy Whole is greater than sum of the parts Unintended consequences will occur
