useful tips: building a solid intranet in 8 steps

He outlines eight steps to getting it right:

  • Forget about your Internet site.
  • Eliminate frames from your design
  • Create intranet guidelines and stand by them
  • Put usability before consistency
  • Start small and grow iteratively
  • Use standard link characteristics
  • Evaluate against measurable objectives and criteria
  • Make your intranet accessible
