How to Model Value-Creating Communication

Collaboration Process as an Example
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10271)


The authors are conducting research on “Value-creating communication”. Value-creating communication process is a process that people embody and clarify their own values and form new values through communication. Therefore, we analyze the collaboration process of interior coordination as an example of value-creating communication. First, we took notice of remarks and analyzed collaboration process qualitatively. Then, we revealed the characteristics of the internal value creation. Second, we modeled collaboration process using Bayesian network and examined the validity and usefulness of the constructed model. A feature of the Bayesian network is to predict the likelihood and possibility of occurrence of an uncertain event by expressing the causal structure as a network and then performing probabilistic reasoning. As a result, we found that the point which participants pay attention to is different in respective items. Furthermore, “conception” affected the choice of the item, and it was suggested that the share of “conception” is important to support collaboration process.
