Good Day! This blog post is the continuity of the previous blog Wednesday Wiki Life – "A journey of mine with the team Microsoft Wiki Ninja." – I use the Microsoft Wiki platform to share the findings and learnings as an article that enabled visibility in the automation landscape broadly.
On one sunny day, I was busy writing an article and overheard a voice. "This looks great! How do we enable it in our team? We need a common forum to share ideas!" That is the moment I seized and replied to the technical architect "leverage SharePoint," and the rest is a success story.
The discussion with the team over a coffee was still memorable, and it is below
Project Manager: "What do you need from us to enable Wiki?" We are interested to see business users collaborating and sharing ideas!
Architect: "Do Proof of Concept and submit the records for architectural review. It is a must."
Project Manager: Share time and effort estimation? How many resources are required?
Architect: Keep calendar updated and demo us the Wiki use case. No data should be available outside of our network.
Project Manager: Let us connect with all stakeholders!
Yes, indeed, it was a roller coaster discussion, and the response to all the questions was "SharePoint Wiki" – No need of any technical discussions or meetings! All we need to do is a plan with business leads to get ideas to host and manage SharePoint Wiki site
Here, is the approach I have taken to introduce Wiki in an organization (I just mimicked, the way we as a Microsoft Wiki Ninja)
Identified few business users who can spend a few hours to work on tags (Organization Approved tags which are available from SharePoint term store management)
Published The SharePoint wiki site and enabled access to all business users and shared the guidelines to write articles. Content Management is a business responsibility.
Team Chat – Created a distributed group in Exchange and used in Skype for Business for chat, a dedicated group for Wiki Ninjas. Yes
Motivation – All the articles are best, so better than the best wins "Article of the Week" award, and the selection process is through a defined process.
How this create impact at the workplace? Positively it enabled all users to contribute ideas in a portal, and that helped many to learn about exciting topics, contact the author to know more, etc. Of course, hands-on experience in SharePoint helped to host Wiki for the organization, but it is my responsibility to shout loud to say that steering the community at the workplace is through the experience I gained from our well known "Microsoft TechNet Wiki Community."
Before signing off, here is the lead for our next blog content – Apart from SharePoint, any other platforms will be befitting to serve the same purpose? The answer is Yes! For how? Stay tuned with us to know more about it next Wednesday, Wiki Life blog post. Until then, Stay Safe and Take Care!
