Registration: Please RSVP to Mary Wilde at info@armancr.ca by January 19th, 2020 to register for this information session.

About the session: It is well-established that information architecture in EDRMS implementations has generally failed to resonate with end users. IM, as a whole, has not been able to provide a tool that users want to use and has resorted to coercing, cajoling, and training activities to attempt to explain the architecture, rather than making it meet the needs and behaviour of the end users.

This session focuses on examining the priorities and focus of information architecture design in IM applications – specifically EDRMS. It is split into four parts that seek to explain what IM should be doing, what it should avoid doing, what it should start doing now immediately, and how to implement the change. It is geared towards Information Architects, IM Policy Analysts and other people who are responsible for the design and implementation of EDRMS, especially in the Government of Canada.

The presentation will be followed by a roundtable to discuss the ideas, concepts, and principles behind information architecture design and how to improve user experience.

About the speaker : Brian Fryer is an experienced Information Management practitioner and Information Architect who has worked at PSPC, Health Canada, DND, Transport Canada, and other departments and agencies across the Government of Canada. He has been involved in designing, implementing, supporting, and updating information architecture across the government.

Hope to see you there!
