This essential new report provides a step-by-step look at each vital phase of a successful intranet redesign project. It explains why user involvement is critical, how to engage users in an intranet project and what tasks users will perform throughout the life-cycle of the intranet project.

Creating a Successful Law Firm Intranet begins with guidance on how to build a compelling business case that will gain the support needed to help ensure the project is a success from the outset and how to identify the roles and responsibilities of your team. Each part of the project is covered in detail and includes processes, helpful hints and suggested tools that will enable you to successfully move on to the next phase.

In each section expected deliverables and outcomes are explained and a case study demonstrates the methodology and processes being used successfully or in some cases demonstrating how not using these methods can be disastrous. Law firm case study contributors include Baker Donelson, Reed Smith and Torys. In detail: Research: How to collect data; understanding use of your existing intranet or the current processes you use to share knowledge and complete administrative tasks.
