And, they don’t just ask for a page, they demand it! Disinterest may be an intranet manager’s biggest challenge, but over-enthusiastic demands run a close second.

Mark Morrell Intranet Pioneer

Sharing the #intranet Stats | Intranetizen | Advanced Intranets & Portals | Scoop.it

If you’re working in intranets, part of your routine is likely to analyse your intranet statistics and look for opportunities for development.
