Understanding new solutions

Understanding and investigating new solutions is an important part of any Intranet Mangers role, which is why Catherine Grenfell's article "Understanding new solutions" on the Step Two Designs blog caught my eye.

From the introduction to the blog post:

"In today’s world new solutions and applications appear every day, and some are more useful and interesting than others. It’s part of an intranet team’s role to know what’s around and be able to make recommendations about suggested improvements. However some teams are reluctant to explore new areas such as social media, mobile devices or online hosted solutions"

Catherine then outlines some of the options (new solutions) available to Intranet Managers and some of the constraints and issues that Intranet managers need to be aware of. This is an excellent post which is well worth a quick read.
