UKeiG is running an Intranet Governance course at CILIP, 7 Ridgmount
Street, London, WC1E 7AE on Thursday 9th October 2008, 9.30-16.30. The
course will be given by Martin White, Intranet Focus Ltd. who has a wide
experience of intranet strategy issues based on over 50 intranet
projects carried out in the UK, Europe, the USA and the Middle East.
Most organisations have strategies and policies for just about every
aspect of operations, but rarely for the intranet. Intranets have now
become essential information platforms, and need to be resourced
The objective of this workshop is to set out the key elements of an
intranet governance strategy. The workshop will cover:
* Making a business case for an intranet
* Developing an intranet strategy
* Turning a strategy into an operational plan
* Creating and managing the intranet team
* Supporting the work of content authors
* Achieving intranet impact
* Developing and undertaking usability tests
* Gaining user feedback
As well as copies of the presentations delegates will be provided with a
template for an intranet governance strategy. The workshop will include
some group work and good opportunities to share ideas and experiences.
