For Information Architects concerned with reducing cognitive load for people that use and interact with our products, we're making the process of interpreting, understanding and getting that product built, a rather bumpy road. Add in an increasingly fragmented browser and device market, and the once somewhat manageable communication problems we originally had as IA's have now doubled.

Flexible documentation speaks not only to the physically fluid nature of future IA artifacts but also the portability and scalability that we need to inherit as a means to communicate more effectively.

Whether you work in a startup or fortune 500 company, utilize a waterfall or agile approach to product design, this presentation will give you tools you can use today to increase your efficiency in design and effectiveness of design communication.

Session Takeaways

  • There is a much better way to spend our time when creating design artifacts.
  • There is a much better way to set clear expectations and communicate throughout the design process.
  • If team members and stakeholders can see, interact and understand design within it's real environment, ambiguity and interpretation is reduced and happiness is increased... significantly.
  • Your value to the process is dependent upon a perceived value add of the overall group. If your team is successful, you will be successful.
