Today we're launching our first-ever original research project: a survey of Canadian Intranet Practices. This survey is intended for Intranet managers, internal communicators, I.T. managers responsible for collaboration and content management, and Intranet content owners. The survey will be open from April 15 until May 27.
For the past couple of years I've been thinking about ways to better understand stakeholders for complex design projects so we can engage them more effectively. At the 2014 IA Summit I presented the ideas we've been working through at nForm.
We're hiring a user experience designer to work out of our Edmonton office. If you're interested and you meet the requirements, please get in touch--we'd love to talk with you! Not in Edmonton? Don’t be shy. If you’re just the person we need, we’ll offer a moving allowance to get you here.
In just a couple of months, two of our own will be speaking at the IA Summit 2014 in San Diego. The opportunity to present at The Summit is a big honour; it’s the premier gathering place for people and ideas in information architecture and user experience. We are very excited to have this opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with other professionals working in the industry.
