How to Launch a Company Intranet Site [8 Step Guide, Updated for 2018]

Setting up your company intranet site can, at first, seem like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be.
Developing a company intranet is a high visibility project which everyone at your company will potentially use and have input upon. Getting it right means your company has a chance to have all employees work more efficiently and collaboratively, helping your organization achieve its goals. But it does require planning, as well as support from your leadership team.
If you are embarking on an intranet design or intranet redesign project, here are the 8 important steps you need to plan, design and launch a successful intranet project for your company.

1. Assemble your project team

As a starting point to your intranet design project, you’ll want to assemble a project team. The intranet design team doesn’t have to be large. But there should be some key stakeholders from the departments who will have the greatest responsibility and impact on the intranet, usually the HR and IT department. You’ll also want to have someone on your executive or management team as your “project champion”. This comes in handy when you need someone to fight any internal political or budget battles that can impede the project from moving forward.
