City of Malmö develops the intranet in small iterations. We prefer to deliver consecutive improvements rather than big bang, “all at once” projects.

This way, the intranet team is running less risk of ulcers — and pressing the GO button is not so dangerous. Another great effect of the iterative approach is that it is easier to market the intranet internally. Jesper Bylund shows the steps taken the last two years and how to think if you want to start building in iterations.

And when developing in iterations, don’t forget to deliver to every device. Today the bigger part of City of Malmö’s intranet is built in responsive web design and accessible on every device, from every place.
