IA Summit 2018 Main Conference TalkTopic(s): career development, information architecture, and strategy
If this is the information age and information is your organization’s most precious asset, why are information architects so marginalized?
In this talk, I present a theory and practice that puts IA at the center of information systems projects and makes them leaders in their organizations.
The result of over 20 years of thinking, writing and doing, I present a complete framework, process and practice for doing IA in the enterprise. And why not? IAs have the tools and talent to lead everything from enterprise strategy to data modelling. I offer this presentation as the beginning of a new conversation on how we think, what we do, and where we fit.
