Enhancing Internal Communications with Blogs, Wikis, and More
Enhancing Internal Communications with Blogs, Wikis, and More by Nick Finck, Mary Hodder, and Biz Stone provides an excellent overview of how to approach knowledge management in organizations with some of the new slick information/communication tools out there such as blogs and wikis. This presenation provides more than just description, and offers practical and actual examples of usage within each of the authors' respective workplaces/organizations/lives. This is a must-see for anyone interested in these apps or getting one off the ground in their own organization.
With so many virtual teams today, along with what some are calling the "collapse of email." Organizations are looking for new and innovative ways for teams to communicate. For many, the integrated communication and information-sharing system that inexpensive Blogs and Wikis provide are just what the doctor ordered. In this session, attendees will learn:
- What tools provide what benefits
- Real-world examples of organizations leveraging these applications
- How to overcome organizational resistance to new systems
- How self-organizing communities can benefit your company
The Resources section points to some great articles. One which I found particularly interesting was Ten things your web sites should be doing by Nick Finch.
