Water and Web 2.0 Creating a Value Network for Water Sustenance
Abstract:The Water Community in Solution Exchange (WCSE), India, is a Value Network that connects with the local communities and administration for design and implementation of societal water projects. This paper portrays WCSE in the perspective of, what the authors label, a Web 2.0 based Value Network dedicated to societal Water projects (W2W). It distills WCSE's experiences into a W2W management viewpoint by integrating the two distinguishing features of a W2W-Water and Web 2.0. Depiction and analysis of three case studies of water initiatives primed by WCSE addresses the Water project dimension as distinct from general project management axioms. Synthesis of Value Network theory and personal insights of WCSE officials validated by a dipstick survey of its members leads into the Web 2.0 dimension. In conclusion, it presents an abstracted management framework annotating the process elements that sustain and nourish the growth of a W2W.
