Can anyone recommend any good books on Intranet planning and implementation for the business professional / manager?
I just picked up a copy of SharePoint Design by WROX. So far I am quite impressed. It is ideal for users that need to get up to speed with design principles and different best practices for intranet and publishing portal developmentwith MOSS. It also covers general design principles and has many references.
Check out the Intranet blog at http://www.intranetblog.com/ they have lots of good articles and reviews that should be helpful.
For business professionals and specifically for SharePoint theres no getting around reading the 1200+ pages in Planning and architecture for Office SharePoint Server 2007
