Or is it an outdated misuse of resources that your employees don't use? In 2009, at Toshiba America Medical Systems, we discovered our intranet fell into the latter category. We knew, through word of mouth and employee feedback, that a very small percentage of employees used the intranet, but we had to figure out the reason why: Was it difficult to use or was the content irrelevant?
