Card sorting and taxonomy workshop
Sorting content into groups that make sense to your audience
Card sorting is a way of gathering information into logical piles or taxonomies, it is used to create sensible structure of information for people to navigate. Card sorting gives us an understanding of the way people think about content and how that content fits together.
What happens during the workshop?
The workshop lasts a full day, in the morning we teach you the principles of card sorting, how and when to use open or closed sorts. How to gather the information and use it to build a structure which can be tested by personas and users. Now that we have grouped our content, the afternoon is spent arranging these content groups into visual wireframes.
Who gets involved in the workshop?
Usually we would invite your stakeholders (representatives of your intranet audience) along to the workshop. This will enable us to clear understanding of the way different people and organisation roles use and think about your content.
What is the result of the content audit?
After conducting the workshop you will have a clear understanding of your intranet’s navigation as well as a visual layout of that content on a page. The grouping and placement of your content will increase the browsability, findability and discoverability of content for your intranet audience.
