Jun 20, 2001: Organizational Architexture + Information Architecture = 1

The SIGIA-L mailing list has generated a lot of heat of late. Why, I don't know: something to do with school being out?

Anyway, Paula Thornton makes a strong case (once again) for information architects to bone up on "organizational design." Which leads me to one of my favorite hare-brained ideas: could there be an inverse relationship between investments in organizational design and information architecture? Could we avoid expensive, painful, and often unsuccessful corporate reorgs if we had better enterprise information architectures in the first place? Methinks yes; do you? Let me know.
