Is the browsers back button our report card showing an F (most cases)?

To put it simply (and a bit overly simplified), if a user clicks on the browsers back button I think the website navigation has suffered a catastrophic failure (in most cases). Why? Apart from user preference/habit (most cases) the user was forced to end their engagement with the website and engage the browser.

Audience Segmentation Navigation

I know it is a common practice for B2B sites to structure the navigation by audience; however, I think structuring the navigation based on tasks rather than audience type could be a better solution. Would analyzing the tasks for each audience type naturally present a common IA that all audience types could understand? For example, each audience type needs to know the benefits of a product (of course, the benefits for the product differs for each audience type).
