Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • Despite their reputation as an evolving shared

    knowledge repository, Wikis are often treated with

    suspicion in organizations for management, social and

    legal reasons. Following studies of unsuccessful Wiki

    projects, a field study was undertaken of a corporate

    Wiki that has been developed to capture, and make

    available, organizational knowledge for a large

    manufacturing company as an initiative of their

    Knowledge Management program. A Q Methodology

    research approach was selected to uncover employees

    subjective attitudes to the Wiki so that the firm could

    more fully exploit the potential of the Wiki as a

    ubiquitous tool for tacit knowledge management.
