This paper investigates the role of Web 2.0 technologies in establishing networked forms of collaboration across organisational boundaries. Emerging forms of collaborative working are explored, to enable identification of emerging trends in web technologies and a better understanding of the actual collaboration problems of knowledge workers. Several collaborative work styles are presented outlining the different co-existing collaboration models and exploring their success conditions. One of the emerging styles of collaborative working is communication and collaboration driven by individual interactions enabling human networking. Focusing on working routines as a key construct in this research, three case studies show the close interrelation between working routines and collaboration tools, and demonstrate the potential for increasing the productivity of knowledge workers.
