Developing a unified web site or intranet for a large, decentralized organization is the Holy Grail for many of today's Internet professionals. This daylong seminar is for managers and web professionals who desperately want to tie together content in a rational, user-centered way, regardless of content ownership issues, cultural hurdles, and turf battles.
This advanced information architecture seminar combines lecture, demonstration and exercises, discussion, and handouts to address a topic that bewilders every large organization: designing unified information architectures for large enterprises. You'll learn to:
* Develop main pages and other upper-level "portal" components that convey a single cohesive organization, not a collection of warring business units.
* Use metadata and contextual navigation to help users move from one content-rich page to another, regardless of which business unit manages that content.
* Design search interfaces for improved access to content stored in organizational "silos".
* Better implement an enterprise-wide information architecture through appropriate research and design methods and improved governance.
