New management thinking endorses reasons for company intranet

Pressbox (Press Release) -
Microsoft and the Cranfield School of Management are claiming that most organisations do not realise that management information should not be kept in files, but made generally available to staff. This means that details about products, services, customers, and contact data should all be immediately available at any screen. It is claimed that workforces perform better when they are empowered with access to such details.
Microsoft’s David Bridger says that "agile" companies let employees see everything they need to know to make decisions and give customer service. The new thinking is that knowing what is going on makes a big dent in the millions of hours lost a year due to low morale, because staff who have access to company knowledge feel they are in charge of their own development. Microsoft have taken this a step further too by not having an HR manager but a director of people, profit and loyalty.
www.Interactive-Law.co.uk has believed for a long time that this is the best way to run legal practices. This is why principal Adrian Miles has developed an intranet especially for solicitors. An example can be found at www.cyber-lawyer.co.uk.
“Whether you like Microsoft’s domination of the computing market or not, you have to admire how they have achieved it. One of the reasons is because of their management approach and the way they develop staff skills and loyalty. Their comments should be taken on board. Interactive Law has developed the solicitors’ intranet facilities to make such human resource capabilities a real possibility within all law firms.”
