Today I completed the draft of what will be our next report: the 6×2 methodology for intranet planning. This is something that I’ve hinted at for the last few months, but I can finally unveil what it actually consists of:
- Step 1: Give the intranet a version number
- Step 2: Scope the first six months
- Step 3: Determine a new version number
- Step 4: Review the in-scope list
- Step 5: Create a detailed project plan
- Step 6: Sketch out the following six months
- Step 7: Create an executive briefing
- Step 8: Create an ‘intranet concept’
- Step 9: Implement the six month plan
- Step 10: Review the project outcomes
I realise this still doesn’t give a lot away, but it won’t be long before the full (70 page) report is out. In the meantime, what I can say is that it is a very different way of looking at how to manage the ongoing improvement of the intranet, and an approach that works within existing constraints instead of trying to work around them.
News flash: I’ve just finished the slides for my workshop at the Online Information conference in London next week. This will now be the first time anywhere in the world to see the full 6×2 methodology, as I’ve made it the core of the workshop. This is something you wont want to miss, so if you’re in (or near) London you’ll definitely want to sign up.
