A KISS for your intranet?

The Knowledge Thoughts Blog has an interesting post on collecting metrics from your Intranet, they argue that Keep It Simple Stupid is an expression that should be used whenever you begin to think about collating metrics from your intranet.

One of the other points they raise is about numbers, one of my bugbears, in the example they give they query whether "A page has been accessed 54,000 times since 2 June 2007" is a good number? I don't see how it can be unless it is broken down into more detail or more context is added to the figure e.g. how long did the person stay on the page, what did they look at whilst they were there, where did they go when the left the page.

A short post well worth reading.
