Sadly this blog post isn't going to be about the BBC television programme of the same name but about something close to my heart which is the role of an "Intranet manager"
Two "recently" published blog posts have made me read around the subject and it's quite interesting to see what other people think. The first blog post was Intranet Manager role: evolve or devolve? this looks at the results of a Global Intranet Strategies Survey which specifically looks at the Intranet Manager role.
The second blog post was "So you think you're an Intranet manager" this is perhaps the more interesting article as it asks "...what does the title of Intranet Manager actually mean: does the job focus on communications, or tech, or are you taking care of both?" The article then asks some Intranet Managers what they think they do. There are some interesting quotes and examples from Intranet Managers about what they do, although my favourite has to be Intranet Managers "...solve communications problems and needs with technology" That pretty much sums up the challenge we face!
