I would like to understand how others have operationalized the concept of
collaboration or coordination from a social network perspective.
Specifically, I'm interested in intra-firm collaboration between
organizational subunits, but I'd be interested in definitions or ideas  from
other contexts as well.  I imagine that there are a number of different
types of relationships involved: information-sharing, trust, resource
exchange, awareness of what other group or individuals know, etc.?  Also,
perhaps these relationships need to be reciprocal?  Is anyone aware of a
definition for collaboration or coordination that they can share with me or
point me towards?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
