Webinar: Information Architecture for Intranets
"I can't find anything!"
At the risk of sounding repetitive, this is still the number one complaint of most employees at most organizations, regardless of size, industry and geographic location. It's no surprise that information architecture is often the top priority of most intranet managers when undertaking a redesign.
When it comes to making data, forms, and documents easier to find, a logical and well laid-out information architecture (content structure; content categories) goes a long way. The categorization and structuring of information can be one of the most challenging aspects of an intranet design, but the end result is well worth the trouble. This webinar will address some of the most common challenges of creating an effective information architecture, including how to how to incorporate input from multiple users across the enterprise.
You will learn:
- The science behind creating an effective intranet information architecture.
- How to use and deploy card sorting exercises for building an information architecture.
- Effective parent categories and parent-child relationships (labels; navigation paths).
- How good information architectures can break down silos and improve operational efficiencies.
- Examples and case studies of successful information architectures.
Attendees will also be able to download the new, complementary Information Architecture Whitepaper after the webinar.
