The soft benefits, the intangible assets that your company or organization acquires, come from many parts of an intranet deployment. They include everything from the convenience of finding documents from a centralized document repository to ease of communication between people, teams and leaders.
However, to truly quantify the money saved (even generated) from an intranet strategy requires a deeper and comprehensive look at how organizations:
- Seek to Control Expenses
- Increase Revenues
- Improve Business Efficiency

After you have developed a clear intranet strategy as explained in my post ‘How to develop an intranet strategy‘ you then need to follow this with an implementation plan, publishing standards and a governance framework.
While every intranet is different there are some common factors that need to be considered so your intranet supports your business requirements:The size of your organisation will affect how you manage your intranet.

There are over 60 applications built directly into your Healthcare Intranet, including staff directory, centralized document management, multi-site functionality and online forms. Itemized below are just some of the features within our Healthcare Intranet (see feature checklist), which provide unique benefits for hospitals, medical centers, end-of-life care facilities and other healthcare organizations.
Healthcare organizations are multi-level, multi-organizational structures. Your intranet needs to facilitate the communication and collaboration of this multi-dimensional workplace while simplifying how your employees access resources. Now you can with Healthcare Intranet Mega Menus.
Gone are the days of a single static navigation bar. Spice up your Financial Intranet and offer your employees access to the all the resources they need from the Mega Menu interface. Our Mega Menus feature allows you to create a “mini-page” of menu ideas with links, content and images to be displayed within the menu itself.
Mega Menus provides quadruple navigational space available on a single item traditional menu layout. This interactive navigation presents employees with more options on their intranet. By placing the most popular links and frequently used resources on your Mega Menu, this facilitates easier usability for your branch employees, which yields higher employee engagement on your intranet.

I recently wrote a guest post on how you can change a chaotic intranet experience into a more consistent and better experience. I showed how a governance framework that has roles, responsibilities, and publishing standards that are implemented smartly can encourage people to use the tools and information more frequently and deeply with consistent design, features and structure.

Synopsis: The evolution of digital workplaces looks similar to that of intranets before them. It’s critical to recognize the patterns, master the success factors and know where the similarities end.
As intranets evolve into fully mobile, functioning digital workplaces, we’re discovering a whole bunch more ‘features’ that we find downright horrible! We’ve already presented 24 signs you’re losing the plot (14 signs, 10 signs, we did the maths ourselves) but we’ve discovered yet more signs you’re losing the intranet plot. How guilty are you?

In the past weeks I have asked many users if they still need their sites that are empty or look abandoned. Now we have had a very mild winter in the Netherlands, and the temperatures have not risen dramatically, so there must be different forces at work. ;) But whatever the trigger, I can only conclude that it is time for intranet spring cleaning again!
An interesting post by Mimi Dionne suggests that a cleanup project can very well be managed by the records management department. I think that is a good idea. But even if you have no records management department to help you, cleaning up your intranet on a regular basis is always a good idea that will bring many rewards!
Recently I posted on how to develop an intranet strategy and how to develop a digital workplace strategy. One of the key factors either strategy must consider is the growing needs of people who use mobile devices to access information needed to help with their work. I believe it is so important that it justifies its own strategy to help achieve the full benefits.
When developing a strategy for people who are mobile it is important you consider the following factors....
There’s no doubt that Microsoft SharePoint has been a huge success for Microsoft with over one hundred million licenses sold in its history. However, these facts mask the truth about the failed return on investment for many companies, with many discovering the hidden costs of SharePoint during and post implementation.

Recently I posted on how to develop an intranet strategy and how to develop a digital workplace strategy. I now want to cover SharePoint because it is used by so many organisations. I have covered in earlier post if SharePoint is good or bad and what organisations need to do to help decide if it is.
This post focuses on a strategy for using SharePoint. Note it is NOT a SharePoint strategy! This is a mistake organisations have made and it can have serious consequences. A strategy for SharePoint needs to consider far more than just implementing technology...
