Wednesday, December 21, 2005Shiv Singh shares his thoughts on intranet trends for 2006. Two things I liked in his article:
Intranet ROI will be pushed to the back burner... In the future, senior executives will be less concerned about the tangible ROI of an intranet. It will be an assumed cost of doing business, just as corporate e-mail has become.I'm glad he sees this trend emerging. I've argued before that intranet ROI is a waste of time.
Some employee blogs will last but unfortunately most won’t... Most organizations have cultures that subconsciously encourage information hoarding and group think. These organizations will find that their employees are reluctant to share their knowledge and personal insights unless they see tangible benefits in doing so. As a result most employee blogs will be superficial and boring unless, of course, they are anonymous.Great points on blogging, and they apply to knowledge sharing in general. Intranets can become a melting pot of knowledge and a catalyst for breakthrough thinking--but there are major cultural impediments to overcome.
