Title

Team-building webs

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to show how the corporate or organizational intranet can be used to enhance team building within organizations.

Design/methodology/approach: The paper describes how the corporate intranet can be used for something more than an electronic library. Groups can act in a coordinated way if there is a continuous flow of information about where they are at and whether or not they are smeeting expectations; this can be accomplished using the intranet.

Findings: The paper shows how to improve the management of people within an organization using the intranet. It describes several practical applications of this technology.

Originality/value: The corporate intranet has never been used as a management tool. It can be used to test comprehension of organizational objectives and expectations. It can help members gain a clearer picture of what is really going on and what each needs to do to change directions.
