Modeling the value of expectations in collaborative networked organizations

The goal of modeling the value of expectations in Collaborative Networked Organizations (CNO) is to review the project behind that CNO and have a basis to decide on whether to go on, to optimize, or to stop the project. In Virtual Organizations, where several actors work on common projects, expectations may differ widely: while one actor might believe in the chances of a project, others might see or face critical factors that may prohibit the project from succeeding. A schema on how to gather, cluster and evaluate expectations in a Virtual Organization can create an input for the decision process on the future of the target project.
