Computer-Human Interaction Forum of Oregon:Computer-Human Interaction Forum of Oregon: The Concrete Aspects of Information Architecture The four main deliverables of an information architect are User Scenarios, Webmaps, Interaction Flows and Storyboards. Storyboards show all the details of a site, flows show the functionality, webmaps show navigational and informational hierarchy, and user scenarios show user personas achieving their goals via the site.

Alan Cooper is the prime proponent of interaction design, a process with similar goals but different methodology. We brought these two visionaries together to compare philosophies, looking for points of consensus
Cooper Interaction Design: Whole lottaCooper Interaction Design: Whole lotta thwarting going on
When building a content-management system, it's essential that it not only look good on paper, but that it avoids institutionalizing any dysfunctional dynamics in the organization as well. The best way to do that is to model the system ahead of time with organizational and individual personas, whose goals will determine the shape of the system. Only in this way can we stop thwarting one another.

The artless Websites created during the Web's infancy were of necessity built only with simple HTML tags, and were forced to divide up their functionality and content into a maze (a web?) of separate pages. This made a navigation scheme an unavoidable component of any Website design, and of course, a clear, visually arresting navigation scheme was better than an obscure or hidden one. But many Web designers have incorrectly deduced from this that users want navigation schemes. Actually, they'd be happy if there were no navigation at all.
