Build a Practical Intranet Development Plan

Managing an intranet seems like an overwhelming task... In most enterprises, the opportunities for internal collaboration and process improvement are, well, limitless...but also very difficult to pull off. That's why I very much like Step Two Designs' new guide, 6x2 methodology for intranets.

Managing an intranet seems inherently an overwhelming task. First, there's the word, intranet. It sounds important, huge, nebulous, and boundless at the same time. In most enterprises, the opportunities for internal information sharing, collaboration, and process improvements are, well, limitless...but also very difficult to pull off.That's why I very much like Step Two Designs' new guide, 6x2 methodology for intranets. It's a practical approach to agile intranet development that emphasizes six-month chunks in the context of a longer plan. I especially liked the part about how to create a 1-page "intranet concept," to replace lists of unreachable goals and supplant vague, windy strategy documents. For about the cost of one developer-hour, this guide is well worth it.
