|Wikipedia and other WMF projects are egalitarian, meritocratic, and self-organizing. Our workplace frequently is not. This workshop investigates how we can bring the Wikipedia spirit, which we call open collaboration, to work. It does so by sharing stories of how what we learned on Wikipedia was successfully applied at work. The goal of the workshop is to understand how to do this more effectively and more frequently in the future.
This workshop will start out with a presentation about open collaboration and the principles of Wikipedia how I see them; the goal of the workshop is to have a lively discussion of how these principles apply in the workplace. Depending on the interest and engagement of the participants of the workshop, the presentation will be longer or shorter, before jumping into an open-space-style discussion.
