In a world that is increasingly more connected using networks of all types, collaboration becomes a way of leverage these connections to benefit both individuals and organizations. Currently there are numerous technologies available, to support different types of collaboration. In order to make informed decisions, it is necessary to be familiar with these technologies and adopt a formal methodology to capture the organization's collaborative requirements. However, no methodology currently exists to help an organization determine which technologies and tools would enable and support its specific collaborative requirements. This thesis analyzes collaboration as an organizational phenomenon and a network application, presents ideal collaborative environment characteristics, surveys existing collaborative environments and tools, and proposes a methodology for selecting and building a collaborative environment. This methodology is based on a synthesis of the traditional system Development Life Cycle methodologies used to analyze, design, and implement information systems.
