Interesting elsewhere: BYOD, Digital Workplace, Social, IA
Friday – you know the drill. Its time for us to share the best of this weeks intranet related interwebery. All of the Intranetizen crew have been busy in the real world – but we still found time to click a few links and get some knowledge.
What caught our eye this week:
- Toby Ward does a good job of explaining why Information Architecture is something you have to go work out for yourself
- Business Week give a good appraisal of the pros and cons of BYOD. Whether sanctioned by policy, or accepted under the radar, 2013 is the year when BYOD embeds fully.
- The Digital Workplace Manifesto: Sam Marshall’s take on a manifesto for employees, contractors and freelancers. A terrific article.
- They Built It, But Employees Aren’t Coming: introducing enterprise social collaboration is only half the battle. This short blogpost says that you need to make it something employees actually find useful if you’re going to persuade people to participate.
- Rethinking the Intranets: Maria Ogneva argues they should help knowledge workers work together and actively engage in content creation
- Oscar Berg justifies the digital workplace. Well, he wouldn’t wouldn’t he? But he does it very well.
- INSEAD talk about enterprise social networks and the importance of good community management. (Though we got there first )
- Should intranet teams stop and do mobile instead? James Robertson makes the case for doing just that. Will you soon go mobile-first?
- Developing trust in the digital workplace: A successful digital workplace is really about people, not tools. Intranetizen’s own Sharon O’Dea sets out how trust is central to the success of virtual teams.
What made us laugh this week:
Remember the kerfuffle when Ikea airbrushed all the women out of their Saudi catalogue? What would happen if you replaced all the women in other famous pictures and advertising with Ikea products?
