Key Lessons about Wikis

28 March, 2007

NSW KM Forum Committee member, Brad Hinton, has provided a write up on last nights popular forum meeting about wikis. Brad provides a summary of a few key lessons:

“Whether grassroots or top down, the success of a wiki still depends on the people. People still need to decide whether to contribute and what to contribute. People also need to know why they should contribute. A wiki can be a useful collaborative tool but only when people choose to collaborate. An empty wiki is of no use at all.” 

Unfortunately, due to room capacity, we had to turn a few people away last night – however, I hope to have some materials to post for those that couldn’t attend and we may consider running another forum meeting about wikis or social software later in the year.
