The importance of Information Architecture
For your intranet to succeed, content must be well organized, well structured, and labeled in a way that is both intuitive and sustainable. In other words, your intranet needs a good Information Architecture (IA).
IA is the organization of content that allows users to understand where they are, and where the information they want is located on their intranet. From ease of use and simplified navigation to faster adoption, your intranet is dependent on a strong IA.
Join us on March 14th, at 12:00 PM PST where, Trevor Allen, Product Experience Manager, and Jessica Dill, Senior User Experience Designer, and Joel Hetariki, Customer Success Manager at Optimal Workshop, will share the secrets to achieving a superior IA for your intranet. You will learn how to:
