HR is wanting an intranet. They've gone to IS to come up with a
prototype. Main purpose of the intranet is access to documents
different departments define (how's THAT for alliteration!?). Also,
it's to be a way to keep diff. departments informed.
Here's my problem: I maintain the Web site and other things HTML (HTML
Help, for example). Also, I create standards & process descriptions
for projects. I'm afraid this project will proceed w/out standards nor
input from me...until it's too late.
My request for info: Anyone know of references to
methodologies/advice/ style guides (?) for intranet-specific topics?
Anyone have any guidelines for intranet projects? Anyone have any
articles/books re: intranets they'd recommend?
Oh--since I subscribe digest, if you could possibly also reply by
e-mail, I'd appreciate it....
