[Research] Coordination Theories

Few random notes:Malone and Crowston [1994] were the first to propose an interdisciplinary science of coordination, as coordination problems are also addressed, for example, in Computer Science. They claim the existence of dependencies between activities or entities. The goal of coordination is to manage these dependencies in such a way that the activities become parts of a purposeful whole.

According to [Habermas, 1984], coordination becomes an issue only if all participants acknowledge that they are dependent on one another to act in the current situation. Habermas' shared background = Clark's common ground
