Create Publishing Policies
Develop policies on what can go on the intranet and what cannot. These policies should touch on the following areas:
Who can publish
Types of content allowed
Site styles -- suggested look and feel
Legal issues -- proper use of copyrights and logos
Ownership of applications and content -- accountability for sites
Security concerns -- how you should secure your site, extranet concerns
Logistics for requesting server space, testing and loading -- how to work with IS
Allowed technologies -- tailor to your network and skills
Maintenance and content management -- periodic review of content and how to update sites
Site communications -- how to market sites once up
Once these policies have been set up, communicate them early and often! If everyone knows how to ask for a site,
build it and then maintain it, the intranet will work like a well-oiled machine.
