As the Interactive Practice Lead for the ICF Ironworks' Tysons Corner Office, I have the good fortune to manage and work with some very talented digital strategists, information architects, interactive art directors, content strategists, research analysts, and front-end developers.
I was thrilled to learn this week that The UX Booth, "a publication by and for the user experience community," accepted and published an article by our own Colin Eagan.
This is something that started out as a whiteboard sketch, and evolved as Colin bounced the idea off of other peers, and incorporated their feedback and input.
Colin introduces a new model, based on traditional elements, to quickly help a project team identify why a digital project might be heading off-course, and prioritize their efforts to get things back on track.
Anyone associated with a digital project team will benefit from this article. Here are a few more reasons why:
- It challenges how most people think about framing a project
- It articulates and visualizes challenges that you're probably familiar with, but could never quite describe
- It offers tangible solutions to improve your chances of success in the long run
