10 Questions You Must Ask Before Implementing a Wiki #4

Ask yourself and your team the following questions before you start to implement a wiki, and be truthful with the answers.

Think about the issue you are trying to solve, and then see how a wiki might be applied, but remember don’t just focus on the positive, think about the potential down sides too.

4. Where is the content going to come from?
Meaningful content is the key to any successful wiki, but you need to think about where it is going to come from. While you will most likely be looking for the community to contribute, you will most likely want to seed the wiki. Where is this initial content going to come from, will you need to invest time in creating new content, or will you import existing legacy content from other systems, such as technical documentation, training, policies and procedures or marketing materials?
