Oneness is defined as the quality or state of being one; singleness or wholeness; uniqueness; a state or condition of perfect harmony or accord. Does this sound like your intranet? For many, the answer is a resounding “no”. Some classify this quest for intranet nirvana as unattainable or impractical. Yet, despite apparent challenges, more and more IBF members are considering major projects to move from many intranets to one.
Hear from Carl Pansini, Director of Communication for Johnson & Johnson’s Consumer Group Companies, why they approached the entire project as a change management initiative. Learn from Sharon O’Dea, avid blogger and Intranet Manager for the UK Parliament, why the key to their successful implementation was providing a common, but clearly differentiated user experience while achieving shared service savings and efficiencies through behind the scenes consolidation. See how David Christopher, Social Media Business Leader for EMEA at Oracle, and owner of StopThinkSocial.com used a low cost, short video that, “In the end, was one of the most effective components of our business case, enabling us to evolve the way we now knowledge share.”
The report is broken into several sections, each introducing and describing challenges at hand, and then providing options for addressing these challenges. Where applicable, we highlight the specific journeys of organizations such as Abbott Laboratories, Johnson and Johnson, The Oracle Corporation, The UK Parliament, Océ and others. At the end, case studies chronicle the journey to a “one intranet” environment for three very different organizations.
If moving to one company intranet is something you are considering, this research paper will be of significant value. All IBF Members can download a copy of IBF’s One Company Intranet research as part of the Research Programme on the member extranet.
