  • First thing – get people to complete the online survey. After viewing results, the goal of the session is to convince you that you have got this back to front.When I first started developing the material for this presentation it was supposed to be about finding information. And how delivering content with a meaningful context would expedite this. After all, finding information is the biggest problem people have with intranets right? Well as I analysed the data, something even more important became apparent and startling
  • Why did I start the WIC? Had a feeling – like many people - that intranets have huge untapped potential for improving the way we work. From giving people more freedom and control over where and how they work to taking away the sysphiun condition
  • Please complete the survey
  • Explain how this has been a dilemma for a while. The possible solution is that the content doesn’t exist in the first place. Lets look at the evidence.
  • Represents a treasure chest of information
  • If this hypothesis is right – it should be easier to find information for those organisations where there is a high level of contribution and hard to find information where there is a low level of contribution? This is fact the case. By now, I am 90% convinced the problem with finding information in the intranet is not search, lack of meta data, poor information architecture – but lack of quality content. People don’t want to contribute. Definitely my personal experience. At least not on an ongoing or sustainable basis.
  • So if we agree that finding information is not the problem – it’s content. Note – the different types of content and how important they are considered in the survey. What can we do about it?
  • The content types here seem roughly to match those in the survey results – qualified content is more valuable than WIP/Collaborative content. Also important to distinguish between different content types – the signal and the noise – quality content V collaborative content. One more valuable than the other.

  • The greater level of interactivity the greater value of the intranet
  • Finding information has virtually no correlation with how much time people spend on the intranet
  • What if the problem is NOT that people can’t find what they want… … but that the content doesn’t exist in the first place
  • How often do you use the intranet to: 100.0% 6.6% 90.0% 8.2% 8.6% 8.4% 80.0% 70.0% 60.0% 50.0% Approximately 90% of staff do not regularly contribute to the intranet. 29.0% 28.5% 39.3% 23.9% More than 50% never do 40.0% 30.0% 56.9% 55.0% 56.7% 50.1% 20.0% 10.0% 0.0% Publish content Never Discuss work topics Infrequently 2-3 times a month Collaborate online 2-3 times a week Provide feedback More than once a day
  • 1. Not enough priority given to persuading people to contribute 2. People don‟t know what they should be contributing 3. Not enough priority given to change management
  • Disagree Not sure Agree I can find the information I need on the intranet 3.00 2.68 2.62 2.50 2.50 2.39 2.24 2.48 2.27 2.23 2.19 ------------------------------------------------------------------------average ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.32 1.96 2.00 1.50 1.00 Collaborate online Publish content Discuss work topics Top 20% Provide feedback Interactive - Total Bottom 20% Overall value of intranet Neutral or indifferent Useful Very useful 3.50 3.00 2.83 2.84 2.81 2.82 2.96 2.51 2.50 --------------------------------------------------------------------------average ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2.66 2.43 2.42 2.36 2.50 2.00 1.50 1.00 Collaborate online Publish content Discuss work topics Top 20% Bottom 20% Provide feedback Interactive - Total
