I’m overseeing the design of our new intranet, and the ‘look n feel’, structure and navigation are crucial to my mind in helping people adopt the new system. I’d like to tell you the old menu names we’re dumping, and the new ones we’re using for our top level navigation.
I’m also able to share the top level menus from several other intranets thanks to the generous nature of my Twitter friends who shared their navigation terminology with me. I trust that none of us are giving away sensitive company information. By their very nature, intranets can seem ‘secret’. While we can all see what goes on with other people’s customer facing websites, we don’t often know what goes on inside other companies of course.
