    • Encourage collaboration
    • Knowledge is not restricted to one location and is available 24/7
    • Democratic

  • 18. Valuable lessons learnt:
    • Use a wiki with WYSIWYG
    • Assign at least one administrator of the wiki to tidy, archive, delete old or unwanted content etc.
    • Provide training
    • Management as well as the wiki administrator need to encourage buy in.
