  1. through my reading i found that is very interesting post thanks and keep it up i like when you link success to strategies and creativity.

  2. Nice post Naif!!! Well covered wiki strategies. I think the idea of proper rewarding is great and its very powerful creativity method. However, in the case of the IGC it will be hard to manage this strategy. What do you think?

  3. Hi Naif, I think what you have mentioned about the techniques involving in strategy’s implementation are great. I agree with Muaath about the rewarding employees to encourage them to use wiki and to answer Muaath’s question, if you don’t mind 🙂 , IGC needs to set policies about rewarding, so that IGC do not see worthless contributions over wiki.

    Great post and great strategy. Keep up the good work mate.

  4. Thinks guys for coming over my post thanks Abdul for answer the question I real agree with both comment. it true that rewarding employees is difficult in term of web 2.0 tools but as Abdul said it is all about the company aims if there are willing to do that or not and if that meet the company aims . A good example is how the tutor in enterprise 2.0 unit gives student marks for how well they contribute in wiki.
