    Goals
    As with everything, its easier to gain cooperation and get quality results when you are very precise about the purpose of the wiki
    Team
    It helps to have a good team. Choose them and/or cultivate your esprit de corps carefully.
    Trust/Respect
    Needs to be built. Show leadership by consulting others on issues where you aren’t certain.
    Sharing
    Studies confirm – early sharing leads to better collaboration.
    If you wait too long, you become too invested in the work to be open to feedback.
    Recognize contributions
    Be sure to recognize and give credit for contributions.
    The best way to win trust, loyalty and added effort is to do the simplest things
    Say thanks
    Point out the idea’s originator, if clear.

    Weeding and pruning.
    A little investment pays off.
