The digital gym - Wish your organisation worked healthier?

We are just over 2 weeks of the way into 2015 and no doubt many of us have made a new years resolution to get ourselves fit and healthy. We might have also set ourselves new goals and objectives for the year at work or in business. Whatever the resolution, it is this time of the year that we reflect and try to identify areas to improve and develop in our lives. It is also apparent that a lot of what we are trying to achieve resonates upon the same principles! Some of which I will try to explain through the widely adopted process of getting fit and healthy...every new year!

Defining a Modern Intranet

A modern intranet is by no means a stretch of the imagination. In fact, it’s rather a lot less complex and thought provoking as you might first anticipate. Every modern style intranet definition will rightly include a social element...but how this social feature functions is the true test of its place on your intranet.

Collaboration: The act of working with someone to produce something

Throughout life we all consciously and subconsciously engage in a variety of collaborations to achieve a desired output. Now some of these may be formal, perhaps informal and they may also carry less or more impact. By and large, you will find that it is not always the complexity of the task or project you are collaborating on, but more so the individual or group that you are collaborating with that have a direct influence on the outcome of the assignment in hand.
