50 ways to a better intranet

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I know it has been a while, I could rattle off a number of excuses but I wont, instead I'll get right back into blogging by talking about this post on "50 ways to a better intranet" on the Worldwide Intranet Challenge blog.

In the blog post Andrew Wright, looks at some of the ways in which intranet managers can make their intranets "better". Andrew groups these into the following tasks, which are then looked at in more detail:

  • Finding information
  • Completing work tasks
  • Interactivity (staff contributions)
  • Performance
  • Look and feel
  • Content
  • Maintenance (governance)
  • Other

    • Finding information
    • Completing work tasks
    • Interactivity (staff contributions)
    • Performance
    • Look and feel
    • Content
    • Maintenance (governance)
    • Other

    I'm not going to say much about the list of tasks and the sub-tasks apart from that it's a very good list for any intranet manager who is new to their role and is looking at how they can improve their intranet quickly and effectively.

    I was interested to see that Andrew included creating a "best bets" lists. This is something we've looked at the past, but haven't yet implemented. Whilst best bets can be useful, they can take a lot of work to implement and you need to ensure you speak to all potential parties about what items should appear at the top of search results.

    If you haven't already then I definitely recommend you have a look at these 50 ways in which you could improve your intranet.
