Abstract [en]

This paper presents a study of intranet in five Swedish organisations The purpose with the study was to investigate in what way different aspects influences the use and understanding of intranet. The method used was an explorative approach, based on two interview guides. The first interview guide was directed to managers and IS representatives, dealt with background aspects of the intranets as well as data about the businesses and their intranets. The second interview guide directed to all kind of users covered aspects about use of intranet and in what way users could influence the content of intranet and the understanding of intranet. The persons interviewed represented end-users, managers and members of the IS-staffs. The interviews were carried out from May to November 2002. The results showed that the intranets in the study were poor matured and the main use mode was publishing. The underlying philosophy of the intranets seemed to be more that the users were informing themselves instead of inform others Furthermore, the use and understanding of intranet differed between end-users vs. managers and the IS-staff. Finally, we have identified important aspects to be considered when investigating use of intranets in further research. These aspects are strategies, context, further development process, competence, and the intranets belonging to the organisation as well as the culture of the organisation.
