This past week members discussed intranet design and more. Jump to the “Something Extra” section for the inside scoop on this year’s Leadership NEW.0 one-day conference. Explore curated sources on these topics including some from ILTA’s treasure chest.

Intranet Design – Inspiration and Best Practices

The greatest source for inspiration and best practices for your intranet update or full re-design is your peers. If you haven’t already, join the SharePoint and Knowledge Management communities. ILTA peers in these communities share screenshots, recommendations and resources to help you with your next intranet undertaking. ILTA also has helpful resources including the Key Takeaways document from this year’s SharePoint Symposium. The document addresses considerations for search, security and compliance and your peer’s favorite “cool tools.”  ILTACON 2017 offered sessions related to intranet design and utilization. “The Digital Workplace Imperative: Your Competitive Advantage Depends On It” demonstrates changing a static intranet for a “dynamic digital workplace.” Do you have ideas but minimal design background? For guidance, listen to “User Experience Design Immersive: Designing KM Tools.” Break free of any remaining silos in your organization when working on your next intranet design. Learn how with the recording of “Bridging the Gap Between Marketing and KM.” When developing a new or re-modeled intranet page, “Avoid Collapse – Build Your Intranet Foundation the Right Way” by including steps to ensure security and information governance.


Mary Abraham is coming to the Windy City on November 2 to facilitate a day of discussion on new {servant} leadership. The origins of the one-day leadership conference, Leadership NEW.0, come from the inspiration of a true servant leader and ILTA volunteer, Chief Warrant Officer Five Sharon Swartworth (deceased). This year at Leadership NEW.0 attendees will enjoy taking a leadership diagnostic and mindmapping exercise and participating in a “new {servant} leadership” bootcamp. Jana Cohen Barbe of Dentons will present a luncheon keynote on her insights and experiences as a new {servant} leader. The Women Who Lead will present a session on developing women leaders. And in true ILTA fashion, the day opens and closes with the opportunity to network with peers. I hope to see you in Chicago to learn and be inspired by the attributes of the new {servant} leader.
