A concise and clear definition of coordination is written in Coordination Theory (Malone and Crowston, 1991)"Coordination is the act of managing interdependencies between activities."

Coordination, co-ordination is the regulation of diverse elements into an integrated and harmonious operation. Coordination means integrating or linking together different parts of an organization to accomplish a collective set of tasks.

Co-ordinating can also involve the organization of a group.
