The CEO Guide to Corporate Wikis

Here's a podcast that gives a good overview of how wikis can be used within an organization to increase productivity and collaboration.
A wiki is a Web site that lets visitors easily add, remove and change the content. The first wiki was created in the mid 90s by computer programmer Ward Cunningham who named his invention,'wiki,' after the word for quick in Hawaiian. The best-known wiki is perhaps Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia which is written collaboratively and can be edited by anyone. Wikis are now making their way into corporations where they are used as collaborative software to handle such tasks as project management, tech support, research and development, event planning and customer relationship management.
