Abstract: Informal projects, such as elaborating a schoolwork, organizing a social event, and planning a trip, are performed commonly in groups. Current approaches of project management are complex, rigorous, and do not explicitly exhibit the flexibility to manage informal projects. We propose an approach based on cooperative work concepts in order to support the participation of members in the collaborative management of informal projects. The proposed approach requires a tool support for the collaborative management. Aiming to verify the effectiveness of the approach, we developed and employed a mobile application to support collaborative management of informal projects. Two case studies were conducted to investigate if the approach, along with the tool, assists in the management activities and encourages participation of project’s members. Our preliminary results show that the approach improves planning and monitoring and control during project management, encourages the participati on of members and helps in the recognition of members compared to existing approaches.
