Wiki-enabled Technology Management
Geoffrey Corb (Johns Hopkins University, USA) and Stephen Hellen (Johns Hopkins University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-60566-400-2.ch031
Social networking technologies—such as Wikis, blogs and instant messaging—are increasingly being employed in business settings to support communication, collaboration and knowledge management. In this chapter, the authors discuss how a Wiki was used to facilitate project management in a large system implementation for a decentralized organization. Further, they show how it continues to add value to the organization after the project’s completion, supporting operational management activities while at the same time providing a platform for fostering and promoting innovation. They introduce important implementation considerations for deploying a Wiki in your organization, in addition to sharing observations from our own implementation that saw both successes and failures.
