‘Old Approach, New Model for Projects
A project manager can set up a project wiki page in a minute. A number of wiki service providers are available, however www.Jotspot.com or www.Socialtext.com seem to standout. Once a project wiki page is created, a PM may invite project members and stakeholders into the wiki page, a people’s page is created identifying everyone’s role and contact information. Subsequently team members may setup blogs, which act as personal diary pages posting comments and photos. Finally project applications maybe added such as calendars, file cabinets, meeting agendas and other services.
