—Collaboration is believed as an effort to balance
between competition and sharing which will take many benefits
to create a strategic advantage between collaborating parties.
With the growth of the Internet and ICT, the conducting of
collaboration through WWW platform will transcend the
barriers of time and horizon. It will also expand the spectrum of
collaboration. Member selection is an important decision to be
made when creating a virtual collaboration team. A project
manager should consider social dimensional factors early in the
member creation process. This social dimension variable is
critical to the effectiveness of the performance of the
collaboration. This paper analyzes two social variables which
are trust and self-regulation tactic as basic requirements in
member recruitment of a virtual collaboration. Trust is widely
argued as a predictor of collaboration performance because of
the lack of face-to-face meetings. As trust in a virtual
collaboration needs to be established quickly, interest in the task
as individual feelings and perceptions of the value or relevance
of the task are arguably key factors. A high degree of task
interest will lead to motivation and self-regulation which is
important when collaborating independently and virtually, and
to create a sustainability.
