Demonstrating intranet ROI (via increased staff engagement)

There have been many discussions recently about the ROI (return on investment) of intranets.

Worldwide Intranet Challenge (WIC): Intranets: the signal and the noise and the need for a 'content miner'

Andrew Wright

In science and engineering, signal-to-noise is a measure that compares the level of a desired signal to the level of background noise. The term is also commonly used to describe a ratio of things that are useful (signal) to less useful (noise).

In intranets, it’s a useful analogy to describe the relationship between work-in-progress (WIP) type content such online collaboration & discussions (noise) and more formal content such as policies, procedures, work instructions, templates and forms (signal).
