Alan Porter’s WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit to be released at XML 2010
Alan Porter’s WIKI: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit will be released at XML 2010, October 13-15 in Philadelphia, PA. The book provides an “organic” approach to developing and implementing a wiki strategy. It will help you decide if a wiki will help your organization (it probably will), select a wiki, seed it with information, and maintain it. But, most important, it examines the human element; how to introduce a wiki into your environment and overcome resistance.
There are five case studies that look at how companies are currently using wikis to improve efficiency, increase communication, and engage customers in a conversation about your products and services.
At XML 2010 we will have copies for sale, and Alan will be there to sign copies.
