Go of Perfection: Developing IA Agility...

Go of Perfection: Developing IA Agility

As information architects we are passionate about creating great user experiences and we want them to be perfect. In a traditional “waterfall” design and development model, we are able to completely design an experience before development becomes fully engaged. Many IAs are now or may soon be part of an Agile process where development must begin with less fully formed designs. This requires a different approach and mindset. Starting with an incomplete picture is difficult for us by nature, but in Agile we MUST do so while refusing to sacrifice quality and usability. In our presentation, we intend to share tips and strategies we have learned for building great user experiences in layers by delivering just enough, just in time.

  • Hi Chris / Joanna and Serena,
    I couldn’t join your talk during the IAsummit I sat in another conference room - but now I had have time to read your talk. Good job.
    Often it stands to reason that quite a lot of people have the feeling that they are up to their neck in work and or they think the way they do their job including their deliverables is the best way.
    But they all forget that UX isn’t just a part of the basic and or outcome of a product - it’s also a part of the product engineering / development process.
    Perhaps this article might be interesting for one or two ... http://ux4dotcom.blogspot.com/2010/01/why-and-why-not-wireframing.html
