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.
Digital Workplace Group launches new IBF Mark accreditation and awards it to 10 prominent organisation.
The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) has launched the IBF Mark, a new accreditation system that endorses high-performing intranets and portals worldwide.
DWG member organisations who achieve an above-average score in IBF benchmarking of their intranet are awarded the IBF Mark. The first organisations to achieve the new endorsement include the BBC, Lloyds TSB and Sara Lee.
Paul Miller, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of IBF, says: “The IBF Mark recognises the achievements of our members, many of whom are world leaders in intranet and portal deployment. It also provides a target for other members to work towards.”
IBF is the world’s foremost intranet and portal benchmarking group. Since 2002, we have been helping member organisations maximise the
performance and value of their intranets.
Run by experts in intranet strategy and deployment, IBF benchmarking provides a thorough, impartial assessment of intranet performance, and a detailed comparison with intranets run by other DWG members.
The IBF Mark can be achieved in any of the four areas covered by IBF benchmarking: strategy and governance, communication and culture, design and usability, and metrics and performance.
