I love this blog post by digitalworkplace, that has used an imaginative way to engage users to describe what the component parts of a perfect intranet should be. By using LEGO blocks.
We have all had experience of LEGO, either in our childhood, or because of our own children, so to use these familiar and wonderful learning toys to get users to explain what an intranet should mean for them, is simply inspired.
My recent personal experience of building LEGO with children over the past couple of Christmases has renewed my awe in this fabulous toy. But hats off to Ernst Decsy at UNICEF, for this approach which presumably allowed the users who got involved to release their inner child, whilst also providing some great insights.
As Ernst points out “The Intranet is not something that’s made out of stone, it’s made out of lego”
And the conclusion to all this fun? Users want;
- content (38.3%),
- social (19.7%),
- collaboration (17.2%),
- news & events (16%),
- activity (8.8%).
