  1. 1. Collaborate, Combine, and Manage: Keys to Successful Intranet AdoptionFebruary 12, 201010:15-11:30AM<br />Content Leader:<br />Katrin Weixel, Community and Intranet Manager, ASHA<br />www.asaecenter.org<br />Connecting Great Ideas and Great People<br />
  2. 2. Katrin Weixel<br />Community and Intranet Manager<br />The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)<br />kweixel@asha.org<br />Twitter hash tag for this session: #tech10 lw1<br />
  3. 3. What we’ll cover today<br />Why are we here today?<br />ASHA’s dilemma and need for change<br />Steps ASHA took to plan their redesign, governance, and training<br />Key elements for ASHA’s success<br />Show and tell<br />How we know it’s working<br />
  4. 4. Key Elements for ASHA’s Success<br />Collaboration<br />Community<br />Policy<br />Fun<br />Intranet Manager (a.k.a. evangelist, a.k.a. strategist, a.k.a. “normal talker,” a.k.a. friend)<br />
  5. 5. Intranet Manager: <br />“I used to work at a place that used SharePoint. At the time I thought SharePoint was a waste of time – it seemed like it was lacking too many features. Now I know the main thing we were lacking was someone like Kat.”<br />Without a dedicated intranet manager, you run the risk of cutting out essential communication with staff. They won’t have someone to help them learn the value of the intranet and all that it can offer them.<br />

  7. 7. Video Success<br />HR now uses “Welcome to ASHAnet” for all new hire orientations<br />Saves precious staff time (for the Intanet Manager and the end users alike)<br />Positive Feedback after we launched the video:<br />“Yay--thanks. 13 minutes is about as far as my attention span goes so this will be great!”<br />“How very coooooool! This is the perfect medium for getting just-in-time info out on training topics! I love it.”<br />“Great idea, Kat. Thanks for covering us lazy people.”<br />
