Digital Workplace or digital working? | Mark Morrell Intranet Pioneer

In my last two posts about the digital workplace I have covered an example of how field-based people use the digital workplace. I then covered how people’s perception of the digital workplace should be more than just considering it is for office-based people only.

But is the digital workplace the best term to describe the new ways of working that people are adopting? Is a term like ‘digital working’ a better description than ‘digital workplace’?

Looking for best free intranet? The free hosted intranet options you have. |

Intranet is no longer something that only big companies have.

Intranet, especially social intranet, is now used ubiquitously by small business and civic organizations, thanks to the fact that many intranets have migrated to cloud and no longer rely on intranet administrators and developers (that usually come with $100,000/yr price tag) in order to be launched and managed.

Solving the Modern Intranet's Identity Crisis

Today’s intranet is suffering from an identity crisis.

And we have only ourselves to blame.

It’s how we talk about the intranet, the words we choose to describe it, the metaphors we deploy as we struggle with the modern intranet’s seemingly endless possibilities for our organizations. I’m surprised I haven’t come across an intranet named Panacea yet — given the modern intranet’s perceived cure-all, life-prolonging capabilities, it would certainly seem like an obvious choice.

So what’s the source of the confusion? Let’s take a walk through a number of different perspectives on just what the modern intranet means.

How Starbucks created an intranet employees love

For fans of Starbucks, simply entering the coffee shop is all you need to get a warm and fuzzy feeling.

That's intentional. Starbucks' mission is "to inspire and nurture the human spirit — one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time." Everything the brand does — from decorating to customer service — reflects that mission.

Are Intranets Becoming Irrelevant?

Let’s dispense with the hype and marketing speak; an intranet is an internally focused, private website. And like all websites they’re meant to hand out information like a Pez dispenser. They are corporate brochureware and their time has come and gone.

There was a time when an intranet was the best possible solution for internal communication. Most companies have events, announcements, files, forms, presentations, workflows and general information that needs to be accessible to the employees or groups within the organization. This content is the stuff of the intranet.

How Do You Define a Modern Intranet? It's Simple

t's possible to dress up intranets with a lot of bells and whistles, but at the end of the day an intranet should do three high level things and do them well. A modern intranet is a smart and integrated system with an intuitive user experience that focuses on three high level things your employees care about most:

  1. News and information — The official corporate and onboarding stuff from HR, Executives, Corp Communications

  2. Finding stuff — i.e., people, experts, information, knowledge and ideas that help people do their job

  3. Getting work done — You know, the "project" and "process" type stuff that actually drives your business, builds product or services your customers.

The digital workplace is for everyone (not just office-based workers) | Mark Morrell Intranet Pioneer

In my last post ‘BT field-based workers use the digital workplace‘ I talked about the benefits and drawbacks of people who work remotely adjusting to huge changes in the way they work.

It made me think of when I have discussed with clients or people at workshops or after presentations who had the view the digital workplace only affected people in offices or more specifically ‘knowledge workers’. They were surprised this wasn’t the case.

So, let me say now very clearly (big drum roll please) the digital workplace is for all employees......

How to fix a broken intranet without any money

Here at Intranet Directions we want to help get intranet managers (and those who have just been told to manage the intranet) get unstuck, when stuck.

So I thought I’d create a (rather unorthdox) strategic plan for the most broken intranet possible – the minimum viable repair. So grab a box of tissues, then man-up:

You’ve got nobody to help, no money and a broken intranet. You could sit under your desk collecting dust or roll-up your sleeves and try and make a difference – it’s your choice. Once more unto the breach, or leave them to it.

A Critical Quality You Want in Your Employees? It’s Inquisitiveness

“I want to buy a flip phone; I do not want one of those new phones. I do not text because it gives you carpel tunnel syndrome. I can’t be bothered to use that GPS system [even though he gets lost every day]. I do not do online banking.”

One of the main competencies that any company today should look for in any new employee is inquisitiveness. If you are looking to build a stable of expat-eligible employees, do yourself a favor and move inquisitive to the top of the list.

Digital Asset Management from an Intranet Perspective

Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems are not only for big, flashy and expensive web properties but have a place in managing intranet content too.

Before we get into details, perhaps we should establish some common ground by defining the term “Digital Asset Management.” According to Wikipedia:

Digital asset management (DAM) consists of management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets.”
