The More Things Change: An Exhortation for Enterprise IA, Joe Sokohl
Information architecture is broken or missing in too many UX settings. Let’s talk about fixing that, especially in the enterprise world. Let’s dismantle the Dribbleization of design and focus on intentional architecture.
The Peace Corps, Change Management, and Information Architecture, Regina Lam
As an information architect or UX content strategist working on enterprise systems, large, significant changes are often the outcome of the work. We are change management professionals in disguise, and this presentation will detail the skills the presenter learned while failing as a young Peace Corps volunteer, and how she applies them to a holistic information architecture practice.
How can we embed Information Architecture as part of normal product development? A Product Manager’s perspective., Peter Harvey
For Information Architecture to become embedded in the product development process, we must use the language of product: What user problems does IA solve and what are the commercial/organizational benefits of IA? The methods of IA can be explained later once you have buy-in.
In this talk I will share ideas and approaches:
- A better way to explain IA to product people/stakeholders
- Show the impact of IA through identifying the targeted metrics
- Embedding Information Architecture in product development
