Whether you call it a strategy or not, you have to make some decisions regarding your new intranet. This can be related to ex the technical setup, how you want users (and the organisation) to benefit from the new platform and how you want it to look. How your organisation wants to handle the process of implementing your new intranet is entirely up to you.
Some organisations go all in creating their intranet strategy, while others stick to ongoing decision making throughout the process. Both ways of handling the intranet process have advantages, although creating real change in the organisation requires making strategically smart decisions in line with your organisation's overall objectives.

Considering time and resources
There are a few different ways to create your organisation's strategy, depending on the time and resources available in your organisation.
