Having identified the core best practices of Web 2.0 and understanding how others have applied them is a valuable prerequisite to the true test—the ability to apply these best practices to your own enterprise. The following structured questionnaire will guide you through this process of:

  • Assessing your organization and products in relation to Web 2.0 best practices

  • Identifying gaps, risks, and opportunities for improvement

  • Formulating a strategy and plan for leveraging Web 2.0 techniques to better meet your organizational and product objectives

This model can be applied to both existing and planned products as well as to internally and externally facing applications. The structure of the questionnaire is based on the eight core patterns of Web 2.0. They can be reviewed in sequence or independently. Keep in mind some general adoption guidelines:
