Abstract

The intranet is a network that uses Internet technology within the organization for corporate communications purposes. Many organizations have already realized that intranets can empower their employees. Many successful stories show that intranets bolster a company's competitive advantage, improve employee morale, and improve communication among customers and suppliers. Building intranets enhances organizational communication and information access. Intranets can be used to achieve the goals of business process reengineering and organizational innovation. This paper discusses the implications, benefits, concerns and challenges of building intranets for organizational innovation.
