Employee initiative is a powerful source of internal motivation. Find out how it can be harnessed to invigorate corporate culture with the help of an existing intranet infrastructure and a bit of ingenuity.

When, in the middle of a meeting, Martin managed to convince me to start writing blog posts, we were talking about intranets that can live independently, so to speak, because they are ‘fresh, healthy, robust, adaptable and vital’. Nearly everyone understands this metaphor in the work environment. This message is even understood during sales pitches. But its real potential, its incredible resilience, is much harder to understand and to explain.
