A famous African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.
The same theory applies to your intranet; it needs strategic management and visionary direction to succeed.
When I think about my company’s core values and vision, I see the need to tell customers that we care about them and that we value integrity and transparency. We must infuse the passion and heart of our entire team into everything we do, but that alone won’t ensure our success.
We still need leadership and vision, and so does your intranet.
Here are the components you need to ensure that your intranet consistently delivers value to employees:
1. Instate a CEO.
The CEO is the company’s visionary, the person who dreams up ideas and is eager to see them come to fruition. A CEO looks for ways to do things better, save more money, direct success and ensure employees are happy and productive. The CEO steers the ship and sets the tone for company culture.
This type of person should be in charge of your intranet. Choose anyone in your company, but he or she should have the qualities listed above.
