Think of it as a great way to get your basic questions answered without having to embarrass yourself in front of your colleagues. Hello, my name is Chris Nodder. I've worked as an information architect and I've managed and coached information architects in several organizations. I don't claim to have all the answers, but I do have some great information to share with you that'll help you work out the rest for yourself. This course is designed to give you a high-level overview of the work that information architect professionals do, and the terminology they use.
If you already are an information architect, there's something here for you too. We'll talk about setting performance goals, tracking your work, and career progression. The field of information architecture is moving pretty fast and more people from multiple, diverse career backgrounds are beginning to call themselves information architects. That's great, because it will undoubtedly bring new insights, methods and approaches to the discipline. Having said that, there are still some basic principles that are common to all information architects and which will help you to stay grounded as you explore all the various permutations.
I'm so thrilled to be on this journey with you. So, let's get started.
