Thanks for visiting the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) website. You'll see this post may refer to the "Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF)," the "Digital Workplace Forum (DWF)" or "IBF Live." But that doesn't match our website name!
In a nutshell, we merged IBF and DWF into one service and changed our name to "Digital Workplace Group." The new name represents the broader set of services we've grown to offer, beyond an original focus on just intranets. We also changed the name of our monthly webinar from "IBF Live" to "Digital Workplace Live."
Although we've relabelled things, we're proud of our decade+ history and have left this page intact. Enjoy your time on our site and please contact us with any questions or comments.
We’re trying a new format for the IBF Blog for the next few months. There will be a ‘blogger of the month’ on a rotating basis. The idea is to bring a breadth of opinion and commentary from the IBF on the intranet and portal world.
The first post will always be a short introduction – so this is me: Sam Marshall. I’m the Director of Research for DWG as well as part of the benchmarking team. Until recently I worked at Unilever as portal implementation manager and on a "new ways of working" project. I’m particularly interested in Intranet Strategy, personalised (targeted) information delivery and online collaboration. This last topic includes virtual team working and how Web 2.0 can be of value in the workplace.
