Work Experience Reuse in Pattern Based Task Management
In: 9th International Conference on Knowledge Management (I-KNOW '09), Graz, Austria, 2009, pp. 149-158

Abstract Pattern based task management has been proposed as a promising approach to work experience reuse in knowledge intensive work environments. While initial work has focused on the conceptualization and development of a generic framework, the process and user interaction of the task pattern lifecycle has not been addressed. In this paper, we introduce task copy augmented by Abstraction Services as a novel approach to facilitate task pattern creation and maintenance in a semi-automatic fashion. Also, we develop the architecture to demonstrate the underlying ideas by leveraging the advantage of semantic technologies.

Motivate users to construct collective knowledge via IT - A psychological view on pattern-based task management
In: Gronau, Norbert (eds.): 4th Conference on Professional Knowledge Management - Experiences and Visions -, March 28. - 30. 2007, Potsdam, Germany, GITO Verlag Berlin, 2007

Abstract Collective knowledge construction is often inhibited by motivational barriers. In this paper we present pattern-based task management (PBTM) as a system to construct collective knowledge and show ways how to foster motivation. We present the motivational structure of the knowledge sharing situation as a social dilemma which feeds free-riding. To avoid this, we concentrate on ways to overcome the dilemma from a psychological perspective by presenting concrete suggestions on increasing users' motivation to actively participate in PBTM. The goal is to foster collective knowledge con-struction as a social process.
