Intranets have been undergoing huge changes in recent years, but the challenge remains to deliver the greatest business benefits. That’s what makes this new intranet book so important.
This new book from James Robertson answers the key question for all teams: what should the intranet do? In 280 full-colour pages, this book outlines what modern intranets can (and should) do.
By providing definitive advice and over 150 screenshots, it builds a common vision that crosses business and technology lines.
The book is structured according to business objectives, starting from the fundamentals and then working through to leading-edge thinking.
Each double-page spread contains a page of advice on the left, and a matching screenshot on the right. This allows teams to dip into the book as needed, or to read through it in detail to inform planning and strategic thinking. Every team, whether new or experienced, will find inspiration and insight in this book.
