I got this article from CIO.com web site, a bit old and you might read it already, they talks about corporate intranet. I think that our company seems like to head up our direction to this.  I notice that one of nine things in this article is the main point to stuck intranet or any IT projects. But many of stakeholders forgot or try to forget.  I was put it here.


Mistake #8: Designing the intranet in an IT ivory tower.

It’s been said before but it’s worth repeating: Involve and engage your users throughout this project.

There’s no way you can begin to understand the practical concerns of everyday life for every single department in the company, nor are you expected to. The intranet should serve the entire community, so involve them from the very beginning.

An intranet team comprised of power users from every department will yield a robust system that works for all departments, not just a few.

Or, put another way, ask yourself, “If the HR department designed the intranet for the entire company, will it match how IT works and thinks?”


So participation and communication is very important, waste the time to brainstorm is better than waste time to fix problem. There are other points that you might be interested inside if you have time this is one article I recommend.



Although the writer, CEO and Founder of Adenin Technologies, put some points that cheer up his company product but we can said that most of all are the fact.
