Cross-organizational collaborations have a high complexity. Modeling these collaborations can be done from different perspectives. For example, the value perspective represents expected value exchanges in collaboration while the coordination perspective represents the order in which these exchanges occur. How to maintain consistency between different models during design time as well as runtime constitutes a challenging topic. Defining criteria and definitions reflecting the relation between these models during the entire life cycle is not straightforward. Different criteria are used for different models since each model captures a specific aspect of the collaboration. In this paper, the authors investigate the challenges arising when addressing the problem of maintaining adequate and consistent models of collaboration during the entire life cycle of collaboration.
