Abstract

Collaboration Engineering (CE) is an approach to designing collaborative work practices for high-value recurring tasks, and deploying those designs for practitioners to execute for themselves without ongoing support from professional facilitators. CE is a fast-moving field of research and practice that has not yet reached maturity. A growing community of researchers is actively contributing to the CE literature. To establish common language among CE researchers in, and to focus the research efforts in this domain, this paper documents the current definitions of key concepts in the CE domain. This paper also examines the scope of CE as a domain of research and practice.
