In this paper, we discuss the concept of collaborative IT infrastructure, and propose a three stage model of implementation of such infrastructure. This model is applied to a typology of projects which include three dimensions: number of sites, number of projects, and locus of project (intra versus interorganizational). We then present considerations on the successful implementation of a collaborative IT infrastructure for different types of projects. Conclusions and future research suggestions are also offered.
