Why Study Information Architecture? 

Have you ever experienced a situation when you just could not find that document on your content management system or a specific job aid, standard operating procedure or knowledge article in your knowledge repository?


Maybe you are using a system or website where you discover the navigation and naming of topics and subtopics don't quite pertain to what you do or how you perform your job?  Or, are you finding that your organization has different names for the same or similar content and you are not sure if you found or are using the correct content?


A contributing cure for these many dilemmas is to implement an information architecture that will drive a user centric taxonomy, metadata and associated keywords to enable consistent labeling, organization, categorization and "findability" of your content (information and knowledge).
