Five Keys to Successful Use of Collaborative Tools

Managers Must Manage Collaboration, Too: Even in Wikipedia's free-flowing editing environment, super-users occasionally step in to resolve problems.

Think About What's Not Wiki: Not everything your company does is a candidate for collaboration. Set appropriate boundaries.
