- Strategy Workshop: If you don’t run your own wiki in your company yet, this workshop should be mandatory. You will learn everything you have to know about a wiki. We show where your opportunities and risks stand. It is not uncommon that customers changed the aim of their wiki introduction after participating this workshop. Don’t fall into the trap of knowing everything that is needed. If you never worked with wikis, it’s highly unlikely to be not interested in this workshop. Even many customers who already work with wikis, use this as an entry point into a more professional and intense usage.
- Barn Building Workshop: You have decided to introduce a wiki and already installed the software. No matter what software you chose: Now you need content. And thats exactly where the Barn Raising Workshop comes in hand. With the help of templates and examples we work together on your content. Your advantage: So called “Killer-Content” for your wiki, that makes it attractive to all employees and intensifies the usage.
- Use Case Workshop - Individual wiki solutions: Your wiki shouldn’t be wide spread? You want to map out individual case applications perfectly? Or you are just looking for a possibility to get a good solution that is quick and easy to implement at low costs?
- Administration Workshop: In this workshop, administrators get to know the configuration of the software from the viewpoints of administrators. We will talk about all relevant setting options and train you, that you are able to handle the wiki on your own.
