CeBIT Australia 2011 was held in Sydney last week. I went along on the last day of the exhibition to catch up with the HelpMaster guys on the PRD Software stand. It was their first time as an exhibitor at CeBIT and they were certainly busy the whole three days. Fielding lots of interest from people looking for CRM and service desk solutions, they took the opportunity to demo HelpMaster Pro’s newest version.

Your intranet is a constantly evolving thing. It’s not something that you can set and forget. As your business and processes change, the information on your intranet will most likely need updating to reflect those changes. Ongoing updates to information and functionality keep it a relevant and effective tool in your organisation.
There are a few things you can do to keep your intranet alive and well.
American NBA coach, Pat Riley, once said:
“Being a part of success is more important than being personally indispensable.”
It’s human nature to want to be needed, but do you really want that? Maybe you’ve already had phone calls after hours and on weekends. What about when you’re ready to move on? Whether it’s changing employers, changing careers, or changing lifestyle, many people put off taking those steps when they feel the ego boost of being needed at work. A boost it may be, but it’s far from practical. A culture of sharing knowledge brings you the flexibility and freedom to step away from the desk with confidence, but it also brings the business the flexibility to promote you, knowing that your role will be taken on more easily by one of your competent crew.
