[Sigia-l] Growing Up IA - a Friday-ish question
I had an interesting discussion this morning and I'd like your input.
Using Jesse's Elements of User Experience diagram as a reference
(http://www.jjg.net/elements/pdf/elements.pdf), would you say it's
more common for IA's, in the course of their professional development,
1. Start by gathering expertise at the bottom of the diagram and work
their way up (implying that they start only with knowing only site
objectives/user needs and "growing up" from there)
2. Start as a thin vertical slice of the diagram and expanding
sideways (implying that they know a little bit about everything and
expand on everything from there)
3. Start as a dot on one area of the diagram and expanding outward in
all directions from there (implying that they start with an
interest/competence in one area and expand out from there)
Think about this in 2 dimensions - your own professional growth if
you're not new to the profession AND the way that you think that most
IA's new to the profession are growing…
And, if you're an IA who ONLY works within one or two levels of that
diagram, please let me know that, too.
