ITANA Wiki Content Management
Still looking for help with content management for the ITANA wiki.
Contact Jim Phelps if you can assist.
Q: How much effort?
A: It's periodic helping with wiki, figuring out what needs to go where.

  • Along with Jim and other active members, it's taking a leadership role in keeping consistency and coherence
  • Helping with sticking to a uniform vision of what we are going to convey, but be adaptable to new things
  • Is valuable to have that consistency in the communications
  • This is critical to our success as we have initiatives running at same time
