Mark Morrell of BT outlines five questions you should answer to help formulate a good intranet strategy. One of those questions has to do with identifying the people who have the greatest influence over your intranet’s success:
Who can stop, hinder, accelerate or start your intranet plans to deliver your strategy? Once you have a list of their names they’re probably going to be most of your stakeholders. I don’t favour the ‘x reps per business unit’ approach but rather feel stakeholders should be mainly from the key functions that people are involved with or work in.
