#aiim13 conference presentation.
21st March 2013; New Orleans.

People have turned to nature to solve engineering problems for centuries.

The natural world can spark fresh ideas in information governance, too, and maybe give you an appreciation for gardening.

Learning objectives:

    • 5. Ideas, analogies and principles Align strategy, content and governance Disconnect in classification: IA vs. Governance Analogies: thinking -> behavior Power of principles The principles of objects and growth The principle of content in context The end of history illusion The danger of principles#AIIM13

    • 9. The Power of Principles Wabi-sabi 1.1st branch right 2.2nd left 3.3rd right etc. 4.Only one branch at time 5.Asymmetry: nothing straight front 6.No branch crosses trunk or other branches#AIIM13
    • 10. The Principles of Objects and Growth1. The principle of objects – Treat content as a living, breathing thing, with a lifecycle, behaviors and attributes.2. The principle of choices3. The principle of disclosure4. The principle of exemplars5. The principle of front doors6. The principle of multiple classification7. The principle of focused navigation8. The principle of growth – Assume the 1100 content you have today is a small fraction of the content you will have tomorrow. 1492 – Kolumbus finds America8 Principles of IA by Dan Brown 1776 – Declaration of #AIIM13 indepencence
