Possible applications for wikis

Wikis are all-round talents. You can use them for nearly everything. Nevertheless it makes sense to start the pilot phase with a small number of uncontroversial topics.

Concrete suggestions for a pilot phase

Choose only 1 or 2 topics mentioned below during the pilot phase. Even if it’s tempting, especially at the beginning you will need quick results, that your colleagues talk about. It is thus better to concentrate on only a few.

  1. Exchange of knowledge
  2. Process management
