Better Process by Design

A session at IA Summit 2012

Thursday 22nd March, 2012

8:30am to 12:30pm (CST)

Process is the backbone of a successful organization yet in many companies process is inherited, modified with anecdotal insight, and unchanging for a long time. The way a team works together and with clients will ultimately determine the quality of the products and experiences they create. Process can and should be designed to align for your organization and the task at hand. This workshop will teach you why process is important, how to define the process needs of your team, and how to design and implement the processes that maximize the potential of the team and the design challenge at hand.

This empowering workshop will teach participants how to take control of their work environment and create a core process backbone and variations, resulting greater flexibility and more successful outcomes. The tools used in IA and design in general these days can be applied well beyond products and software. We want to teach attendees of the summit how to do that and, in turn, improve their contribution to their organizations.

Some information architects struggle to make the type of impact they know they’re capable of making. By applying their existing skills to process design, they can begin to create an work culture is much more responsive, innovative, and effective. Regardless of the channel they are working in, these ideas will increase the value that IA’s bring to their organizations. It will also seamlessly compliment attendees of Kevin’s other workshop, Better Meetings by Design.
