Bringing in new technologies for information sharing does not automatically mean bringing in more people. It can place new and old actors in awkward positions of negotiation, where inclusiveness of people, technology, and resources compete with each other. Nor does it automatically provide a higher sense of awareness. Including a wider range of data and sources means greater needs for management. Sharing everything with everyone is both a problem of clogging the decision lines, and differentiating signal from noise.
- Do not rely on the technology to bring in more or a wider range of users.
- Be aware of how people, technology, and resources compete with each other.
- Support noticing, determining, and improving information quality.
