The Role of Collaboration in Organizations
‘More than 97 percent of senior leaders believed collaboration is essential to success. However, only 30 percent of respondents and 47 percent of senior leaders believed leaders in their organization are actually skilled in collaboration. Results indicate leaders must learn to work across boundaries to collaborate effectively in the coming years.’ (Centre for Creative Leadership, 2007) Collaboration is a process of participation through which people, groups and organizations work together to achieve desired results. Common factors and characteristics have been identified by research as influencing the collaborative ... market research, surveys and trends
Scaling Up Usability
The organization used in this paper to study how to scale up usability is the Felleskjøpet, FK in short. FK is The Norwegian Agricultural Purchasing and Marketing Co-operation (FK), a part of Norwegian farm co-operative system. This is the largest supplier of feed concentrate, agricultural implements and fertilizers in Norway. Such a large business entity of course needs to increase usability in their communication system for this purpose FK uses an groupware indirect system that has multiple functions. It is maintained by R & D organization met. Since the system is large and still growing, scaling-up can usability as key ... market research, surveys and trends

In 1993, the term "digital libraries" was popularized when it became the focus of a $24 million research program jointly sponsored by ARPA, NASA, and NSF. Many computer scientists, in fields such as human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and information systems, who had not previously been concerned with the design of libraries became keenly interested in this research opportunity. Imaginative entrepreneurial computer scientists and information scientists soon began organizing research conferences on digital libraries, and a new field was soon born. The example of digital ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

For the purpose of organizing this answer for you, I have broken the answer into four categories: 1) "business intelligence" telecom, "business intelligence" web sites, "decision support systems" telecom, and "decision support systems" web sites. After perusing many of these papers, I discovered that not a whole ...
Slashdot | Great Computer Science Papers?
"Recently I listened to a talk by Alan Kay who mentioned that many 'new' software ideas had already been discovered decades earlier by computer scientists - but 'nobody reads these great papers anymore.' Over the years I have had the opportunity to read some really great and thought-provoking academic papers in Computer Science and would like to read more, but there are just too many to sort through. I'm wondering what great or seminal papers others have encountered. Since Google has no answers, perhaps we can come up with a list for the rest of the world?" This discussion has been archived. ...
