  • Personas work for both intranets and Internets
  • Personas work for both intranets and Internets
  • Strategy provides direction. Without it, how do you know where you are going? And how will you know when you get there? How will you know it’s a successful journey?
    And along with strategy, governance needs to be in place so that you have the foundation of support to proceed.
  • pronounced SOON-zuh,
    Sun Tzu is traditionally believed to be the author of The Art of War, sometimes called the Sun Tzu, an influential ancient Chinese book on military strategy considered to be a prime example of Taoist strategy. Sun has had a significant impact on Chinese and Asian history and culture, both as an author of the Art of War and as a legendary figure. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Sun's The Art of War grew in popularity and saw practical use in Western society, and his work has continued to influence both Asian and Western culture and politics. It is accepted as a masterpiece on strategy and often referenced by generals and theorists throughout history.
    The essence of strategy is that you must set limits on what you're trying to accomplish. - Michael Porter
  • Hard: From paper reduction and reduced information distribution to labour reductions
    Sales: allow sales force to enter and access customer data, track sales leads, forecast sales and profit, shcedule meetings and more
    Productivity: by aggregating disparate tools, quicker and more accurate access
    Competitveness: faster and more accurate information and knowledge, not to mention hiring Gen Y’s
    Access: Desktop and home access to multiple applications and processes
    Infrastructure: capital an maintenance costs reduced by utilizing web technology
    Collaboration:the value of an organization will exponentially increase as more and more connections and collaboration points are made between intranet users, look at linked in, facebook, twitter
    Time to market: responding faster to market demands with real time info sharing, faster development of products and services
    Customer Service: fewer employees required to service customers through support and reference information. Cisco is able to resolve 70% of of help desk calls online for a $86M savings
    H.R: arming employees with the right tools and information to do their job.
  • Sodexho USA (www.sodexhoUSA.com) is the leading provider of food and facilities management in North America, with $6 billion in annual revenues and 110,000+ employees. Sodexho runs cafeterias, housekeeping in the hospitality sector, grounds keeping, plant operations and maintenance and laundry services to more than 6,000 companies principally in health care, schools, and the military.
    One of SodhexoNet’s more innovative and successful tools is its SuperSleuth sales lead program. SuperSleuth is an intranet web page and application that encourages employees to submit sales leads and prospective clients via the intranet. Successful leads submitted via the SuperSleuth intranet page generate cash rewards of up to $1000 for the person making the submission. Sodhexo says it has contributed to a 100% increase in sales leads in the past year. Let me repeat: a 100% increase in company sales leads. Wow!
