(Presentation at the VU IMI and LIKS AI section seminar, 8th November 2013)
Social Project Management is a novel enhancement approach to project management based on social network. Social Project Management is defined as the effort of designing and executing research project, problem-solving tasks collaboratively by levering social networking. It aims at:
– Exploiting weak ties between researchers and implicit research know-how to improve activity execution and improving of knowledge sharing and collective intelligence.
– Increasing transparency and participation to the decision procedures, so as to raise awareness of the research processes and acceptance of the outcomes.
– Involving (informal) communities in research execution, thus assigning the execution to a broader set of performers or to find most appropriate contributor within a group.
We will present how social project management combines social networking, collective intelligence, and problem solving to increase the effectiveness of best practices. Current work on Collective Intelligence will be presented for the applicability of universal knowledge sharing inside social project management.
