Scottish Government: Evolving an intranet into a digital workplace

The Scottish Government has launched a new intranet built as a minimum viable product with a process of continual improvement. It can be regarded as a move towards a digital workplace. A series of homepage apps help employees complete tasks such as record time.

A number of government agencies also share the intranet with their own branded spaces. A centralised content management process and reduction in content, improved navigation and enhanced search is driving findability and efficiency
