Format: Paperback
If you're new to leading the design, development, and/or management of an Intranet, I strongly suggest you begin by picking up a copy of James Robertson's first book, "What every intranet team should know." It's a solid primer on the topic and will help you orient to the basics and the challenge(s) in front of you.

Sharing further, here is my review of Robertson's more recent book called "Designing Intranets".

Intranets are complicated. And most of the complexity is hidden from view. Organizational, technical, business process, and stakeholder (political) complexity makes Intranet design work hard hard hard. It's only when you try to redesign or re-architect an Intranet does the true nature of this complexity start to become apparent.

Slicing through the confusion of how to develop a winning Intranet strategy and execute it with precision is what Designing Intranets is all about. In James Robertson's characteristic clarity, his book breaks down the elements of creating sites that work into understandable and digestible pieces, and presents them in a logical, top-down fashion.

Take if from somebody who has the battle scars of leading the redesign of DreamWorks Animation's Intranet, this book is your new best friend because it gives you a safe place to begin thinking about what you need to do, and how you need to go about doing it.

I wish I'd had both of these books prior to hiring on at DreamWorks Animation. Both are worth the investment. I recommend them unconditionally.

I'm an intranet strategy consultant and have a client (global company, UK headquartered, 20,00 employees) whose top executive manager read this book on a plane trip.
He came back to the workshop I facilitated a month later totally convinced of the value of intranets.
Although this book was written for intranet teams, it seems to serve a general purpose of communicating intranet value to management.

I found several new ways to look at intranet design, and approaches to follow that will make an intranet team more effective.
