An Exploration of the Human Element in Collaboration

An Exploration of the Human Element in Collaboration

Year: 2009

Section: Human Behavior in Design

Editor: Norell Bergendahl, M.; Grimheden, M.; Leifer, L.; Skogstad, P.; Lindemann, U.

Pages: 221-232

Abstract

In this paper, the authors propose that there is an inconsistency in the understanding of collaboration and of the collaborator because of a contradiction between attitudinal and behavioural characteristics of present day humanity and that in which is required from a collaborator and through collaboration. We will argue that the sources of this contradiction are an overdependence on scientific quantification and certain factors that affect the sociological and psychological formation of individuals and their respective relationships. We believe that this misunderstanding can be corrected through proper training and we suggest some avenues in that regard.

Keywords: collaboration, behaviour, human-centred design, psychology, sociology
