Understanding and Supporting the Creativity and Innovation of Communities Using and Evolving Software Products
Department of Computer Science

The SAP/L3D project is a one-year project sponsored by SAP. The goal of the project is to use meta-design as both an analytic framework and a design framework. Using meta-design as an analytic framework, we seek to develop a better understanding of user participations in user communities associated with SAP products. Based on this better understanding, we will propose intervening strategies and techniques to re-design the social infrastructure for sustained user participations that in the end lead to better product design, support and evolution. This talk discusses the theoretical foundations, our research framework for analyzing two highly active and successful SAP user communities, as well as expected results.
