Aren’t we all a bit Wiki?

How can we come to a common understanding of Business KPIs if you have a broader thinking than only a small group, meaning, you like to have the knowledge of as many people as possible? Nadim Razvi and Florian Stapf , two of my colleagues were working hard on defining tons of business KPIs. And, having Web 2.0 in mind they thought: “Hey, why should we do the work on our own. Let the Web 2.0 community do the work! Let’s build a Wiki for that stuff.” And so they did. They built a KPI Wiki (KipiWiki), entered all of the incomplete KPI definitions and waited for the coming (having Wikipedia in mind). But, after two days, nothing had happened, nobody optimized their definitions and even after a week, nothing happend. So they thought, that Web 2.0 is really a bad concept, because nobody wants to work there (for them).

The good news is, this story is not really true. But the hardest truth is: Web 2.0 is not about people making your job. If you need content, you have to be part of it all. Be a Wiki’an, be a blogger, be an author, be everything you want, but be not passive.

Nadim and Florian did a good job, not only, that they contacted a lot of people, who might be interested in their really substantial content, they made it available to all sdn and bpx people and for their entertainment, they created a nice video, I call it the Kipi Wiki Vidi  . But its a fine one. And since yesterday, it can also be found on Silicon Island in Second Life.

And even more, I am really looking forward about their first panel, discussing KPI and how companies do strategic business. and I am very curious about the place, where it will happen.

      great post martin.  thanks for encouraging the community to volunteer.  it's good to remember on the side of the poster too that despite fears of vandalism, trolling, and hacking, the community just might not automatically come. we have our part to do in getting the word, and the reasons, out there.
