Wiki for projects - any experiences?

TWiki, described by its developers as an enterprise collaboration platform, seems to be an interesting approach when it comes to enterprise knowledge management and exchange. Some success stories and testimonials can also be found (see also TWiki in the News.

Sounds cool. On the other side, we have a tradition of creating Office documents, and I am not sure how well this corresponds to the Wiki approach. Other than that, I have the impression that while the Wiki approach works well regarding private information creation and exchange, knowledge exchange within companies may not be without challenges, so to say.

I am curious as to what the constraints are in order for enterprise collaboration (the wiki way) to work successfully - especially in medium-sized to large companies. Any thoughts?
