When an intranet loses its usefulness over time, and people become disengaged and end up working around it rather than through it, I often find that governance has been neglected.
Even a strong and appropriate strategy will founder if the governance isn’t in place to execute it. Governance is the foundation for a great intranet, and by ‘great’ I mean an intranet that everyone find easy to use, helps them with their work, and supports their organisation’s goals.
I have blogged about intranet governance but my book offers a lot more than I could ever drip-feed via short posts. This book helped crystallise my thinking around governance, and delve deep into my past experiences as intranet manager and consultant.
Take a look at my book called ‘Digital success or digital disaster?’ if you have a problem with your intranet, collaboration site, digital workplace or mobile workspace that needs better governance.
It is published through Intranätverk and offers you my experience, guidance, and tips for you to consider as a toolkit to improve how you manage your intranet.
