In 2006: Turn intranet users into intranet editors
Tuesday, December 27, 2005The most important intranet concept for 2006 is to turn your users into editors. This is the wiki concept (definition), and it will become mainstream in 2006.
Why would you let your intranet users become intranet editors?
It removes publishing barriers. On most intranets, average users don’t submit content—the process is confusing or time-consuming. But if users can publish their own content, they stop hoarding and start sharing, increasing the currency and relevance of your intranet.Some intranet managers are alarmed by the prospect of allowing users to edit content. But good intranet software tracks usage and records version history, mitigating any risk. Will you open up intranet publishing in 2006? The potential upside is worth it.
