A modern organization

A modern intranet does many things for the organization. It acts as a two-way communication platform giving all employees a voice and providing management with real-time feedback, and acts as an engagement platform for social networking and user-generated content leading to lower turnover, better on-boarding of new employees, and increased collaboration. In this webinar, we'll explore the components required to achieve these results including the one essential ingredient that most organizations get wrong.

International Association of Business Communicators

While organizations often utilize their corporate Intranet as a means to develop culture, deliver messages and increase internal productivity, many executives often worry about the loss of control that often accompanies this internal form of communication.

Leaders are often forced to walk a fine line when it comes to the management of their Intranet, as too much management can result in the censoring of valid opinions; while not enough management can risk having unauthorized content published, or lead to excessive socialization. As such, the question still remains; how does one ensure that the conversations that take place on an organization’s Intranet stay focused around corporate goals and values?

Jayson Peltzer at DrupalCamp Ottawa 2014

Over the years, I've trained dozens of developers on Drupal and worked with many more who have learned on their own. The comfort levels with Drupal among developers ranges greatly and that's because there has never been a set model to follow until now. I will discuss the main barrier for entry that most Drupal developers struggle with, and outline a tried and tested learning model that anyone can follow that will turn any average developer into an above average Drupal guru.
