Spreedsheets' Support for Shared Work

Nardi, Bonnie A.; Miller, James R.



Abstract: Spreadsheet applications benefit from collaborative work practices as users with differing levels of programming skill and domain knowledge cooperate in constructing spreadsheet models. Spreadsheets enable collaborative programming by offering functional layers that support users at different skill levels. The exchange of domain knowledge is facilitated by the visual clarity of the spreadsheet model exposed in the spreadsheet's tabular format.
