The core model is both a mindset and a tool. The core model helps you focus first on what’s most important to both your business and your users, saving the nitty-gritty of categories, hierarchy, and naming in your information architecture for later. Give your users a clear path that’s aligned with your business objectives and create appropriate content for solving whatever task the user comes to your site to do.

When you follow the core model process, you begin with content that is important both to your business and your users. This makes it easier to involve your stakeholders and collaborate across functional and subject areas. During this workshop, we will break the content and the design into its smallest parts, following the principles of content first, mobile first, and responsive web design.
