Thanks for visiting the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) website. You'll see this post may refer to the "Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF)," the "Digital Workplace Forum (DWF)" or "IBF Live." But that doesn't match our website name!

In a nutshell, we merged IBF and DWF into one service and changed our name to "Digital Workplace Group." The new name represents the broader set of services we've grown to offer, beyond an original focus on just intranets. We also changed the name of our monthly webinar from "IBF Live" to "Digital Workplace Live."

Although we've relabelled things, we're proud of our decade+ history and have left this page intact. Enjoy your time on our site and please contact us with any questions or comments.

The fact we at IBF are ‘team blogging’ has in itself raised comment this month, which has prompted an article on the IBF website and blog review.  Let us know what you think… does a changing author of a blog lessen the value of that blog, or does it actually provide a broader viewpoint? 

Maybe, with so many companies considering corporate and CEO blogs for their intranet this is a model they should consider?  A ‘leadership team’ blog…. less onus on one member of the team to blog every day and a variety of viewpoints for employees to consider?

Toby Ward discussed intranet blogging earlier this year and offer good advice for those considering the idea in his article

It’s the last day of July, so I shall be signing off as the IBF blogger for a while.  It’s been a new and interesting experience and I’d like to thank everyone who has left comments and enabled discussion and debate.

  1. I don’t think team blogging lessens the value of a blog. If it’s needed to keep it active, do it, and varied authors can provide a broader viewpoint. Many companies are doing this now, interally and externally. For example, this agency has various authors from the executive team:
