Tool and Purpose

We're using MediaWiki - same technology used for Wikipedia.
Many purposes:

  • Move online collaboration forward here
  • Slay some silos
  • Capture and build knowledge quickly (significant number of staff are retiring/leaving)
  • Speed the flow of information and unleash the power of collective intelligence
  • Empower employees to contribute and continue learning
