Love the comments on Intranetizen
“5. Improve intranet governance; reshape the role of intranet manager
The last 3 years have seen an evolution in intranets, changing from simple internal communication publishing spaces into business-critical collaboration, social, transactional platforms. Your intranet manager is really the Director of Business Enablement.”
Love the comment about the job title changing. Business enablement may work but also something about enabling people within the business, aligning closer with capability, development, innovation and learning spaces rather than IT, Knowledge and Communications. It’s no longer about managing content sitting on a database behind a firewall but developing spaces where people can gather, innovation, network and play.
