9:30 AM Key Takeaways Working Session: Developing Your Intranet Strategy
Strategy is the art of distributing limited resources to achieve your goals. In the first half of the session, we’ll introduce the why, what, and how of Intranet Strategy, including the relationship between business goals and intranet goals. In the second half, we’ll break into small groups to discuss how to match intranet strategies and tactics to goals, sequence intranet improvements into a roadmap to implement your strategy, and overcome potential obstacles along the way.

The Essential Content Checklist is a new asset that answers the question “What enterprise content is essential?,” so you can focus your energy on making the right documents, links, and information available and findable. During this session we’ll share the Essential Content Checklist and explore applications for new and mature Synthesis Intranets.
