• Getting started – Rules of access

• The essence of navigation
• The impact of aesthetics
• Department differentiation
• Advanced options
• Web 2.0 collaboration functionality
• Branding on the intranet
• The role of content strategy
• Commercialisation of the intranet

About Your Workshop Leader:

Andre works for the ADVTECH group and is currently assigned to Vega The Brand Communications School where he is responsible for systems integration
and IT strategy. The group uses Microsoft Sharepoint for workflow and intranet services and Andre is leading its implementation at Vega. Apart from his full
time assignment his passion is the provision of learning systems for NGO’s and small business. He believes such organisations stand to gain the most from
integrated IT solutions. He has extensive experience in applying open source WEB2 technologies to a variety of problem areas. What distinguishes Andre from
many of his peers is his open approach to problems. He believes innovation is driven by the right answers to the wrong questions. Andre is a control systems
engineer and has worked in the field of knowledge systems for 20 years. In the 1990’s Andre spoke at a number of conferences about the concept: Electronic
Performance Support, but the crash had negative impact on such initiatives. Apart from his work in knowledge systems Andre is a well known digital
artist and researcher in the field of “systems of thinking”.
