The Seventh Occasional Information Architecture Slam

A session at IA Summit 2013

Friday 5th April, 2013

1:45pm to 3:30pm (EST)

The IA Slam is a condensation of the white-knuckle terrors and orgiastic joys of a full client engagement into a take-no-prisoners improvisational session. Participants will work in teams to solve and present a heretofore unimagined business problem in a compressed time frame, and members of the winning team will be awarded a medal at a special ceremony at Sunday’s lunch. If this sounds scary, you’re right. If it sounds fun, you’re also right. If it sounds irrelevant to the practice of information architecture, you couldn’t be more wrong: past slam participants have found the slam useful in interviews, user research, and developing their networks.
