Rapidly changing business requirements necessitate the adhoc
composition of expert teams to handle complex business cases.
Expert-centric properties such as skills, however, are insufficient to assemble
an effective team. The given interaction structure determines to
a large degree how well the experts can be expected to collaborate. This
paper addresses the team composition problem which consists of expert
interaction network extraction, skill profile creation, and ultimately team
formation. We provide a heuristic for finding near-optimal teams that
yield the best trade-off between skill coverage and team connectivity.
Finally, we apply a real-world data set to demonstrate the applicability
and benefits of our approach.
