In the current fast-paced world, organizations do not have time to postpone ideas due to the lack of suitable technical and scientific supports that can help them in a rapid connection establishment in order to develop collaborative works. This paper presents a methodology that aids the user to find the appropriated performance indicators that may be used to compare and after to suggest a suitable set of organizations to fulfill a specific Collaboration Opportunity. In this work is made an assumption that the Virtual Organization Breeding Environment has a common set of performance indicators that are known and agreed among the involved organizations.
