Event Details

Presenting a UX Cambridge pre-conference half-day workshop.


You’ve worked hard on the information architecture models you’ve created but haven’t been able to sell them to the client, or your co-workers. Maybe the conversation around the IA has broken down into an unhealthy debate over semantics. In another scenario, you are tasked with creating a controlled vocabulary for a large organisation that has a silo mentality and a lot of legacy content. Where to begin? These scenarios will sound familiar to most IA professionals.


This workshop will focus on the soft skills that make someone good at IA. The lessons here are really about leveling up in skill set. Topics covered include:  

  • conflict resolution in IA
  • selling IA to others in your organisation
  • improving stakeholder interviews
  • facilitating low fidelity conversations about language
  • visualising language with simple pictures to get clarity

 Specific Takeaways:

You'll learn:

  • strategies for getting an organisation that may have different ideas about how to organise and name content to agree upon a controlled vocabulary
  • specific tools in the form of diagrams, beyond the ubiquitous sitemap and wireframe, which communicate complex ideas
  • techniques for practicing information architecture with clients and colleagues collaboratively


This workshop is for anyone currently practicing IA as part of their job. Product designers, product managers, UX designers, content strategists and engineers would benefit from this kind of focus on collaboration.
