Interesting elsewhere – a round-up of #intranet reading
The four Intranetizens like to read around on all aspects of intranet management.
Technology, strategy, design, content, UX, innovation – it’s all relevant to intranet practioners.
Here’s a round-up of our favourite reading from the past week. Tell us what’s inspired you this week using the comments below.
- Three fundamental reasons for having an intranet team – James Robertson asks why so few organisations have dedicated intranet resources – and why that resource is vital. Essential reading if you’re bidding for budgets and headcount.
- Ebay’s mobile intranet – See how Office have developed a simple, attractive mobile intranet. They’ve stuck to the central principle that mobile intranets should deliver the key things people need while they’re out, and it works well. A nice example.
- Yammer blog: work just got better – Yammer have announced a host of new features for their summer release. Does this mean convergence with Sharepoint is imminent? Just as we predicted…
- NASA’s internal social network was a flop. Here’s how to make sure yours isn’t – NASA can put a car on Mars, but their internal social network launch wasn’t exactly successful. Ryan Faas explains how an enterprise social network succeeds or fails based on a company’s corporate culture and how well a social network taps into it.
- What’s your unadoption strategy? Stop fretting about adoption and start thinking about what needs to stop in order for social to take off. What will you get rid of to make way for social collaboration?
- Enterprise Social Networks at work: Interviews and articles showing how IKEA (Yammer) and Coca-Cola Enterprises (Chatter) use social networks.
