Information architecture for intranets

Hello,
my first question on the list. I´m designing an intranet for a
conservative client who has a strong organisation oriented company
culture. Interviews and surveys with staff mention that an
organisation-structured intranet is the most natural way of using it.
However, my client does not want this, and I don´t want this due to the
administration necessary whenever a reorganisation is made (which is quite
often).

Referral needed: Visual designer

Hi all -

I'm casting my net out there for visual designer referrals for an
intranet redesign project. Here's a bit of background:

- It's a 3-year-old intranet for a national nonprofit of ~500 users
- We only have budget to redesign look & feel and some IxD/IA (mostly
home page and global search/navigation).

FW: Defining the mental model

Hi Austin,

I like your definition, but I think you're missing something
in it: objects. Actions are performed on objects, and the
way a user conceptualizes the objects they are acting on to
achieve goals is an important part of their expectation of
what the results can or will be. So I would say:

Goal + Action(s) + Object(s) = Expectation

You could collapse Actions and Objects into the term Message
that you use, however, I dislike this because it seems to reduce
interaction to communication (or behavior to meaning, as I've seen
some IxD theorists do).
