Abstract: Abstract As firms encounter new problems in the fast-changing business environment, they have to find collaborators with problem-solving expertise. Since this optimization problem takes place in a firm as the business environment changes, genetic algorithm (GA), which has shown outstanding performance in obtaining a sub-optimal solution relatively quickly, seems to be the right solution, one that is superior to goal-programming, multi-attribute decision making, and branch and bound. We therefore propose a GA-based approach to solving the problem of assigning collaborators to multiple business problems. Our solution worked well in several experiments.
