10 Questions You Must Ask Before Implementing a Wiki #9

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.

9. Which type of wiki should I use?
There are many different types of wiki in the marketplace, don’t just decide to use one type because it’s the only one you’ve heard of, go and do some research. Talk to people who have used wikis for similar implementations that you have in mind, find out what they used, and why. Find out what they rejected and why. Develop a short list of at least three wikis to prototype and test.
