10 Best Intranets According to Nielsen

At the Supreme Court of Canada library, we are in the process of doing a quickie redesign of our Intranet. Essentially, we have decided to pare down things, go for a minimalist design, break content into smaller chunks, create a very simple navigation scheme (we hope!). We should be done by April.

In the meantime, I have been reading up on the topic. And whenever you say "redesign" or "usability", the name of usability guru Jakob Nielsen is sure to pop up in the conversation.

Well, on his newsletter this week, he just happens to have written an article entitled 10 Best Intranets of 2007 (I didn't know the year was already over, but anyhow...):

"This year's winners emphasized an editorial approach to news on the homepage. They also took a pragmatic approach to many hyped 'Web 2.0' techniques. While page design is getting more standardized, there's no agreement on CMS or technology platforms for good intranet design."
