New year, new intranet! It's hard to believe it's that time of year again—the release of the Nielsen and Norman Intranet Design Annual. This is the 16th consecutive year that the nearly 500-page report has been published. If you have big plans to overhaul or re-design your intranet in 2017, then this is just the article for you. Here you will glean insight into the 7 common threads that the top 10 winners all shared. If you're thinking of applying for the 2018 awards, I highly recommend taking some pointers from this year's winners.
