This paper shows a study and analysis of coordination practices, and introduces a prototype to improve coordination processes arranged around to-do lists. After describing a real work setting from ethnographic studies, the coordination problem between distributed teams are illustrated. The prototype developed tries to show a solution to this problem by offering a common and a private space for project members. The paper addresses several issues like awareness about the work of others, automatic update of the common to-do lists due to modifications in individual to-do items, trust and mutual support between project members, support for articulation work, necessity of history tracking of to-do items, and finally, requirements derived from these aspects. The paper ends with a conclusion including future work.
