A wikibook is collaborative writing on a website, anyone can contribute and edit the pages live online. We are trying to establish a knowledge base and a means for ongoing development that is available anytime, anywhere.

What is the need we are trying to meet? (Problem to solve) Our problem is too many meetings, having to be in the same place at the same time to work on a project or convey information. The Wiki allows us to brainstorm, compile, and come to conclusions collectively without having to be in the same room.

Is the effort worth the return? (Optimize short/long term effort) It may be a little new, another "place to go" but in the long run it can be a great collaborative knowledge base where everyone has a say!

Does it contribute to our main point of effort (Point = EXPERIENCE) The point is to give everyone a level playing field to address issues and concerns. We can learn from each others experience!!!

What do you think?[edit]

This is another good aid for collaboration from the satellite offices. Used in conjunction with other electronic meeting systems it could be part of the answer .(Tom)

I think it's a good way to get our ideas out there, and it helps to see other input in writing. It's also a good way to keep us on track and we can't interrupt each other. (Bev)

I think that it might be a good way to also capture some of that organizational knowledge. The why's and hows of what we do that get lost in the shuffle. It seems like it might also be a great way to meet and work without having to meet face to face. I like it (Alice)
