As an Information Architect, it is common to place an extreme importance on taking a long view towards the development and maintenance of any information system. This implies an in-depth systems design, which some might not think is very agile. However, over time and working with many clients, I have come to understand how you can apply agile principles to Information Architecture. The key lies in helping people produce information quickly without worrying about its ultimate placement.
This talk will primarily focus on media organisations and how the design of websites has confused our requirement for good sound principles of information architecture. There is nothing in the field that implies a deep systems design, especially when speaking about content.
IA is the art and science of making information useable and findable. The art portion of this requires continuous experimentation and evaluation. This is the key to making your IA agile.
