Deciding how something will be organized can seem simple, even obvious at first. But many organizations find that even simple projects can be stalled out due to lack of clarity, agreement and understanding around structure and language.
It is not uncommon to see politics, technology constraints, semantic arguments and legacy decisions drive the information architecture of products and the organizations that make them. This can negatively impact organizational efficiency and user experience.
Information Architecture always exists. You can’t add IA or take IA away. All you can do is change it to better align with your goals. I can help your team to do just that.
Whether you are a team of one or one hundred; whether the mess will take a week or the rest of your year to figure out, I can help you make sense of any mess.
Requests that I get sound something like this:
- “Help! Our company just acquired another company and we need to combine everything but we don’t know where to start.”
- “OMG, people in my organization have so many ways to say the same thing, it is starting to slow us down.”
- “Welp, I am ready to give up. This mess is too big and hairy to get my mind around!”
If any of these statements sound like you, you are in the right place. I specialize in figuring out the most effective structure and language for whatever you are building.

While I work on making sense of your mess, I would love to train other people in your organization to be better sensemakers along the way. My goal is to leave you more prepared to take on messes on your own.
I look forward to hearing about your mess and talking about how I can help.
