Grow Your Wiki

Wikipatterns: a practical guide to improving productivity and collaboration in your organization

Wikipatterns BookThis book is about change. It is as much a how-to guide for using a wiki as it is a how-to guide for making change happen. Status quo often becomes the norm when the tools available to people are difficult to use, highly structured and only meet a narrow set of needs, and don’t elicit a positive emotional connection from the people that use them. The wiki is a product of the idea that change can replace status quo.

The book is…

  • A how-to guide for growing wiki use in organizations with practical advice from a wiki expert.
  • Inspired by the vibrant community on Wikipatterns.com.
  • Loaded with case studies from organizations big and small including Sun Microsystems, Johns Hopkins University, LeapFrog, Red Ant, and National Constitution Day.
