Roles in Online Collaboration
Jul 7 2009, 5:21 PM EDTI've been giving some thought to different roles in on-line collaboration, and wondered if others had as well. As we develop the Leadership for a New Era Initiative, I think it would be helpful to understand different roles that people might play so that we can orient people we invite to join us. Here are some roles that I see:
Contributing: People post reports, articles, and things they have written to the topic page.
Highlighting:People take the time to pull out ideas, concepts, contributions from their work that they think will be most helpful to the project.
Framing:People create categories and an organizational scheme to help manage knowledge on the topic
Organizing: People extract and organize knowledge about the topic.
Writing:People create new content about the topic.
I'd love to hear what others think. Do you find this valuable?

Aug 5 2009, 9:53 AM EDTThe roles you have identified are very similar to those identified for knowledge management initiatives. To your list I might add two more.
Apply - put the documented knowledge into practice, use it (too often this is where KM efforts fail)
Guide - serving as a bridge between the identified knowledge and those who need it, bring others on-board
