Collaboration readiness depends on "hard" factors such as competency fitness or technological preparedness, but also on several other factors of a "soft" nature such as organization's character, willingness to collaborate, or affectivity / empathy relationships. A modeling approach to assess how prepared is an enterprise to join a collaborative network is proposed. The approach is based on a notion of "character" of the organization and the use of belief networks. An example illustrates the proposal.
