Happy New Year. Here is what I found most interesting in week 51, 52 and week 1. 


A New Year’s Resolution for your Intranet: Do an IA Health Check!

Here are six key lessons that Susan Hanley learned that can form the basis of your new year’s resolution to give your intranet IA a health check.

By Susan Hanley

Should I hire a consultant to help with my intranet?

If you’re looking to hire a consultant, think carefully about what value they can bring and the potential return on that investment. What experience or knowledge gaps are there in the consultant and the team? Show how bringing in a consultant can help to up-skill the in-house team too, through knowledge transfer during the project.

Where to find hundreds of intranet screenshots

Intranet screenshots are useful for intranet teams because they can see how other intranets are working and a great tool for designing or redesigning your own intranet. There are different ways to find intranet screenshots and some of them is mentioned in this article. E.g. is Intra2, where you can get access to 5.000 dumps if you share your own.

Social intranet drives employee productivity

Some common concerns by often elderly executives are that employees waste too much time on the intranet, social media and the Internet. But what about the social intranet - does that drain productivity? No not if employee compensation and rewards models are as it should be, and employees are accountable for objectives and goals.

Intranet Radio at IBM

IBM has begun using radio to its impressive employee digital workplace to engage their employees. IBM Community Radio is the new intranet radio station for IBMers worldwide. Up to 6000 employees tune-in to IBM Radio every day, and they are able to talk about whatevver they want. Topics are e.g. workplace issues, customer services, career advice and they have weekly guests and Q&A.

Digital Workplace 

Digital Workplace Strategy Starts with Culture

Before developing a digital workplace strategy, you'll want to understand the unique culture of your organization. By conducting a cultural appraisal you'll gain much-needed insights into the unique cultural facilitators or blockers that exist within any organization.

Go for it! Manifesto for 2017

Innovation and entrepreneurship are spreading in organizations and people are more free to experiment and take risk than they were before. But innovation is not a job role. Every employee can be a potential innovator and this is becoming more obvious for companies and workers.

Office 365

Microsoft Teams & Office 365: Collaboration Overload!

Everything was relatively simple. Yammer was Social, SharePoint Team Sites & Groups for collaboration. Now, Teams has been thrown into the mix, and Yammer is getting a Groups integration. What to do!

Among Email and Microsoft Teams, Yammer Still Has Its Place

Email and chat help you collaborate with people you already know. Yammer helps you collaborate with people you don’t know.

Internal Communication 

Much ado about an entirely acceptable synonym‘s first definition for advocate is “to speak or write in favor of; support or urge by argument; recommend publicly". There are a increase in employee and companies that supports e.g. legal rights for religious liberty laws and global warming. There has been a few different views on the word advocate but labeling a program “employee advocacy” does nothing to demean other types of advocates. The thing that matters is how ethically the program is implemented.

Eight good books on search management

The core collection for search managers should include these eight books about search management. They cover the spectrum from a deep dive into the technology, optimisation of the user experience, search evaluation and text analytics and mining.

Voice tech is the new interface to everything

Chatbots is the new hot marketing platform and e.g CoverGirl has been using chatbots for communication with their potential customers. The reason that chatbots are the new exiting platform is found in three different factors. 1; The messaging apps like Messager, WhatsApps, Slack are a natural platform for chatbots. 2; Artificial Intelligence enables chatbots to understand natural language despite of the way it is phrased. 3; The rise of voice tech devices that are sold in the world.

Artificial Intelligence

Japanese white-collar workers are already being replaced by artificial intelligence

Most of the attention around automation focuses on how factory robots and self-driving cars may fundamentally change our workforce, potentially eliminating millions of jobs. But AI that can handle knowledge-based, white-collar work are also becoming increasingly competent.
