Computers are now being increasingly used to support collaborative knowledge intensive processes. These are collaborative processes where intense interaction takes place between team members working towards a common goal. The paper identifies technology as an enabler of the collaborative work practices in such processes. To do this technology must provide ways to set up systems to support collaboration and at the same time assist users to adapt systems to changing work practices. The paper defines a collaborative metamodel to define collaborative work practices and to provide the ontology to define software agents that help users adapt it to changing needs. It then describes a prototype implementation.
