A benefit analysis model for collaborative networks
The identification and characterization of collaboration benefits is an important element for the wide adoption of the collaborative networks paradigm. In order to establish a basis for analysis of benefits in collaborative networks (related to the behavioral dimension in the ARCON reference model) this chapter introduces an approach for the analysis of benefits in collaborative processes for enterprise networks. The potential application of some suggested indicators and the emergence of a “collaborative spirit” based on the reciprocity mechanism derived from this analysis are also discussed in a VO breeding environment context.
