Corporate Wiki Policy

Why This Subject?

The nature of corporations, especially large ones, isn't just show me the money, it's also show me the policy. As a subtask of ConvincingYourBoss, developing a corporate policy regarding internal wiki usage is an important step in generating buy-in from senior staff. IBM used their wiki to collaborate on a draft of a policy for internal blogging and wiki usage which the lawyers, HR, and Communications folks then tidied up per their specific needs. This is a call to TWiki advocates to collaborate on a draft wiki usage policy that we can take to our companies and customize.

Discussion

Amanda, this is an excellent idea! The policy question comes up many times, especially in Fortune 500 companies. What tool should be used for what purpose? For what things should e-mail, IM, blogs, wikis, CMS be used, respectively? What are the official tools? What is the policy of creating wiki applications (e.g. using StructuredWikis)? How much does IT support/tolerate shadow-IT where users are in control? How can TWiki coexist with other enterprise tools (SharePoint, Documentum, etc)? Therefore, defining a generic wiki policy here on twiki.org that companies can use as a base for their own wiki policy whould be very helpful, and supportive to the TWikiMission.

Exactly this topic comes across in most implementations we do. I find it very helpful to have this up here. We should enhance it.
