Intranet

Designing your intranet never stops

Design is an oft misused word. Some people assume it means how things look, when really, design is about how things work.

There’s another misconception, that intranets are designed by ‘the designer’ before launch to suit business requirements.

I think we all know this is wrong these days. ‘Design’ is much more than the ‘look n feel’ and is about the user experience. And intranets are designed in a collaborative matter, over time.

Improving the user experience of your intranet is as important as developing increased functionality. In fact, functions will get neglected if they’re not easy to use.

If all this sounds reasonable, and if you’re looking to improve your intranet, then please consider coming along to our Intranet Design workshop next month. Now’s the time to book.

It’s led by James Robertson, who’s only over from Australia for a short while. James’ intranet design and management books had a huge impact on my work when I was an intranet manager, and I’m certain that you’ll find the full-day workshop both useful and inspiring. Bring your intranet problems, take away solutions to implement the week after.

Take a look at the workshop details and agenda, and please note the special Team Rate tickets
