We have just a few spots remaining for a class I'll be teaching on Information Organization and Access (IOA) in New York from December 10-13, 2007. Please join me for either the 2-day Practitioner Workshop (12/10-12/11) or the full 4-day Master Workshop (12/10-12/14).
The 2-day Practitioner Workshop includes a strategic overview: building a business case, leadership, and information governance. The track then continues with the nuts and bolts of content inventorying, taxonomies, metadata, document modeling, search techniques, and findability.
The 4-day Master Workshop includes the Practitioner sessions, then outlines how to justify and conduct a proper information organization or access project, including requirements gathering and best practices in search implementation. The workshop concludes with an advanced look at security, governance, and case studies.
At the end of the day, technologies like Content Management Systems or a Search tools constitute only a part of what you need to successfully manage content and make it findable. We developed the Information Organization Access course in conjunction with AIIM to address the common issues enterprises face when taking control of their content and making it more findable.
Sign up in November and you will receive a free copy of the book that every good Information Architect keeps by their bedside: O'Reilly's Information Architecture for the World Wide Web -- a.k.a., "The Polar Bear Book," by Lou Rosenfeld and Peter Morville.
Please make plans to join me in New York this December and learn the skills you'll need to optimize findability in your enterprise in 2008...
Hope to see you there!
