In recent years, globalization of the market place has presented new challenges for co-operative working. Organizations must assemble team members having varying skills and experiences, in widely dispersed locations dealing with several issues such as overall strategy, analysis, design, marketing, production and administration. CSCW represents a field of high activity in terms of new tools and technological advances. As well as descriptions of a selection of tools available in the marketplace, details of practical experience and suggestions for future development from those involved in the design, use and management of facilities for CSCW are included in this text.
