How usable is your intranet? Can your employees find the information they need quickly and easily? Intranet usability is all about relevance and finding the content that matters - content that you and your team need to make connections, make decisions, and make a difference.
Try this simple usability test on your own intranet. Starting from your home page, can you find the following information within five minutes before resorting to search?
Test this out with a few employees and measure the results to find out how long it really takes them to accomplish these tasks.
Now multiply your results by the total number of employees in your organization who need to find 10-20 similar pieces of information in a given day. Then mix that in with the number of intranet-specific tasks that need to be performed between teams. How much does this time cost your organization? How much should it cost? The difference is the cost of poor usability.
