7 thoughts on “Email vs. Wiki: Picture = 1000 words department”

  1. Funny how hard it is to introduce anything that would replace e-mails into a company.
    Wiki, blog, CMS, you name it.

    I think one think should be put on the pictures: company resistance.
    “If it’s not in a folder, it’s not safe”

    It’s sad, but true.

  2. Sure. Email is an excellent tool for communicating something like the URL to a wiki.

    Email is still a lousy tool for coordinating the development of a shared document.

    I also think the quest for a single tool “to rule them all” is as useless on my computer as it is in my workshop.

  3. I like the comparison, but I think it really only applies to a company which is not properly using their document management system. An ECM with a proper workflow module even allows for collaborators outside the system, such as vendors or clients, to build a strong document through an accurate and secure process.
