[tweetmeme source= “jsnrss” only_single=false]Who would have thought that intranets can be exciting!? That governance, content strategy, stakeholder engagement and rollout strategy can be things to get excited by? With a reputation damaged by a lack of ownership and focus, intranets certainly don’t have a good name for themselves.

At View our take on creating a successful intranet has always been a simple one – treat it as a journey. As with every journey there is a clear start and end point (and at times, an onward destination!). At the start, just one simple question why would people use an intranet? At the end, something usable, effective and engaging that users want to use.

Intranets designed by View - never losing sight of the end user experience.

Granted, writing about the journey in a short blog post is not so easy. Every organisation has different challenges and different solutions are needed to get there.

But all too often though the starting and ending points are forgotten about and when this happens it’s no surprise that getting there is made all the more complicated. Perhaps most importantly, it’s when these are forgotten that the passion is lost from what should ultimately be an exciting and inclusive challenge for any organisation to address. Hell – I know we’re having fun working on our intranets!!
