Abstract (EN)The model presented in figure 1 - the collaboration ontology roles game model (CORG) , is an adaptation of the SECI model proposed by Nonaka and Takeuchi in 1995. According to the authors, the process of knowledge creation is an iterative process which continuously cuts four modes of knowledge conversion: socialization (a meeting to share experiences), externalization (a map to formalize a new process), combination (of explicit knowledge in the real setting) and integration (or learning by doing) that is the ultimate goal for each individual willing to be prepared to face an emergency situation. The process of knowledge creation is described in detail by Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995) by considering the following steps: 1. Sharing tacit knowledge, 2. Creating concepts, 3. Justifying concepts, 4. Building an archetype and 5. Cross-levelling knowledge in the interorganizational network and its environment. Emergency situations – we are interested in this poster in a possible avian flu alert in Quebec – require collaboration between members of different organizations, agencies and communities (Daniels, 2007; Carver and Turoff, 2007). Recently, a new body of literature has emphasized the learning capacity of the adhocracy compared to automated responses from the hierarchy (Medonça et al. 2007). In this poster, we present our vision to develop a role-based simulation environment for the health care community and their partners to manage, on a collaborative basis, an extreme event such as avian flu.
