How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

Great article - How Wikipedia Works (or Doesn't) that looks at Andrew McAfee's experiences around the " Enterprise 2.0 " article and Wikipedia 's Articles for Deletion process. At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. Both are uses in smaller workgroups which is probably an early place to look for adoption. It's an interesting discussion of the net impact of Wikipedia's process - which can be frustrating, especially to casual users. This is a somewhat strange answer.

Individual Value Required

Tony Karrer

Aaron's main point is that enterprise 2.0 software or enterprise social software should not focus on: social networks or social software, which is focused entirely on enabling conversations Instead, Aaron points to what he calls Collaborative networks: Rather than focusing on socialization, one to one interactions and individual enrichment, businesses must be concerned with creating an information fabric within their organizations. Adoption starts based on individual value. See Enterprise 2.0 - What's the PU? & Web 2.0 eLearning Technology.
