Sometimes the pointy-haired manager just doesnâ€™t â€œgetâ€ the wiki concept. Hereâ€™s something to email him/her..
The business benefit of a wiki is two-fold. First, project members and team have a single, common platform for managing documents which is easy to reference (in email, IMs etc), cross-platform, accessible, and perhaps most importantly, searchable. Second, it gives the business instant transparency into project state. By standardizing on a wiki as a place for status reports, minutes, project plans, design documents etc., both business and development has a shared, direct place to go for information, reducing expensive request/response cycles incurred when the business requests information.
