Using the report

The purpose of the showcase report is to help you deliver a great intranet or digital workplace. It’s designed to be easy to dip into, to grab a screenshot or insight when needed. The report can be used in many different ways:

      • See what others have done, by browsing the huge number of screenshots and extensive case studies.
      • Get inspiration for your project, uncovering new ideas or approaches that will increase the impact of your solution.
      • Strengthen a business case, by showing senior management what other organisations have already delivered, and what benefits they’ve gained.
      • Benchmark your current state, against innovative examples across a wide range of functionality.
      • Accelerate your redesign, by drawing on emerging best practices from leading intranets.
      • Use as a conversation starter, providing a starting point for discussions amongst all intranet stakeholders, including communications and IT.
      • Avoid pitfalls and problems, by drawing on the lessons learned (and shared) by successful  projects.
      • Move the intranet towards a digital workplace, by exploring the expanding horizon of what great sites can do.
      • Plan the next steps for the intranet, and keep your site up-to-date with the leading edge of developments.
      • Rebuild enthusiasm for the intranet, within the team and the whole organisation, via these inspirational examples.

Whether you’re in the middle of a major  redesign, or planning incremental improvements, the showcase report is a must-have for all teams.
