Information architecture is essential to any experience design team that is confronted with scale. I provide expert recommendations for modeling and maintaining the structure of application user interfaces in complex information environments.
Architect it. Own it.
What I Do
Large organizations that use agile and lean methods often struggle with strategic and operational ambiguity. I help organizations implement frameworks for digital experience architecture that promote sustainable strategy, planning, and sound experience design operations at scale.
The collective knowledge gap of busy teams can get so wide that intervention becomes necessary. I leverage more than 20 years of practice and research to coach design leaders and product managers in the science of managing team complexity and delivering socially responsible business value.
In the digital experience economy, the architecture and design of user interfaces are as critical to a business’s success as the architecture and design of the technology infrastructure that supports them. This poster leverages the DSIA UX design practice verticals to express key activities that shape digital experience architecture.
This chart highlights information architecture and other major practice verticals that contribute to the scope of user experience design and shows exactly where the practice of UX design elegantly intersects across disciplines.
In a digital era of constant change, teams will find themselves playing “catch up” with user behavior and technology trends. However, as human behaviors evolve and trends come and go, there are four digital experience architecture activities that are here to stay.
If you are a digital product manager, UX architect, or design architect, it’s important for you to consider what I call the architecture risk principle (ARP). ARP correlates to a widely known statistical probability, called the Pareto principle.
Information architecture is widely associated with navigation and content organization. However, information architecture’s value extends well into other critical aspects of digital environments, products, and services.
They said it. Not me.
Experience design is “the design of anything used by people with human experience as an explicit outcome and human engagement as an explicit goal”
