After a couple of years of the ‘intranets are dead’ refrain, there’s now a renaissance, as intranet managers either become part of new digital teams or work closely with digital workplace leaders.
The digital workplace is an important concept, and the intranet’s place within it is still emerging for many organisations. Those intranet and comms people who only consider the intranet to be a broadcast channel will find their budgets and headcounts cut, while those that embrace digital and consider the intranet to be a collaboration and productivity platform will see themselves elevated.
This journey, this digital transformation, is not easy for the organisation or the comms and intranet people who find their roles must change.
We are looking for people who share their journey. We want to recognise them and award one person the Intranet Now Diamond for their remarkable contribution to the intranet community.
Who has influenced your approach? Whose blog do you read? Who do you listen to on Twitter? Who makes the most sense on LinkedIn? Who do you love to see at events?
Our past winners include Martin White, Sam Marshall, James Robertson, and the Intranetizen crew (Dana Leeson, Luke Mepham, Jonathan Phillips, and Sharon O’Dea). They won because of their commitment to sharing their experiences with others. Their presence online helps shape our community, and supports the work people are doing in-house.
Who will you nominate? Does your intranet or digital person blog externally?
The award is mine and Wedge’s to give, but we take advice from our past winners – the Diamond alumni.
The winner will be announced on stage at the Intranet Now conference in London, 5th October 2017.
