Wonders Knowledge Portal


In 2002, Wonders Information Co., Ltd., a software company headquartered in Shanghai, China, started building a knowledge management system. The system, called Wonders Knowledge Portal (WKP), appeared to be well intended, well planned, and well designed. Its functionalities seemed useful and should have appealed to employees. Nevertheless, the usage of the system by the employees had been limited, and the company risked wasting its investment in the KMS.
