Autumn – season of intranet awards, surveys, reports


As we all know, late September marks the time of year when intranet managers capture screenshots, write about their successes and participate in intranet competitions and surveys.

Or maybe it’s not such common knowledge. So here are three important opportunities to contribute to to the intranet Gestalt. There’s intranet awards to be won out there, people!

Submit screenshots: My Beautiful Intranet (Goes Social)

Screenshot: Winner of the 2011 My Beautiful Intranet competitionThe Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF) is holding an updated version of its very popular 2011 My Beautiful Intranet competition.

This time around the focus is on social intranets. Take a few screenshots of your intranet homepage and other example pages and submit your entry on the IBF website.

You can also vote on the entries already submitted.

If you think you have a chance of winning, then prepare for a level of fame most intranet pros can’t even imagine.

Fill out Digital Workplace Trends survey

Digital Workplace Trends report 2012Jane McConnell, a stalwart of the global intranet community, is running the 7th annual Digital Workplace Trends survey. This report captures broader trends, challenges and standards in the intranet world.

Sign up to participate in the survey and you will receive a free copy of the report, which otherwise sells for $450 a pop.

By sharing your voice in this report you can help Jane and the rest of the world understand the state of intranets (and the broader “digital workplace”).

Submit examples for Nielsen “Enterprise 2.0” report

Nielsen Norman GroupThe venerable Nielsen Norman Group (NNG) is updating their Enterprise 2.0 Report: Social Software on Intranets with new stories and examples.

If you have social features on your intranet or corporate portal (such as wikis, Twitter-like microblogging tools, social bookmarking, prediction markets, etc.) we’d like to hear from you.

How have you used these types of tools to extend or enhance your company intranet or corporate portal? Has your company experimented, through user trials or already achieved successful implementations of social collaboration/networking tools? If so, we would like to learn more about your efforts.

To participate, email Patty Caya at the NNG to share your success story. Companies whose stories are chosen will receive a free copy of this $300 report, which currently includes 168 pages, 60 color screenshots and examples from 14 companies in six countries.
