Summary

Information Architecture Value Chain

The value of anything often depends on your audience. If you need to express the value of information architecture, use the "Information Architecture Value Chain" reference guide to help you craft the right message.

For any Web interface project, you can group the perceived values of the entire team into the following four parts:

  • Strategic value - Business owners, product strategists and planners will appreciate
  • Design value - Product managers, strategists and the entire content and design team will appreciate
  • User value - Business owners and product strategists will appreciate
  • Technology value - Systems architects and developers will appreciate

 

Use the information architecture value chain reference guide:

  • as a professional reference to remember the four key value propositions of information architecture
  • as a discussion guide to educate team members
  • as a review of the areas of interest that are necessary to realize each IA value proposition in practice
