      Modeling for Clarity Workshop @Fall Experiment

      We are excited to offer workshops as part of the ProductCon track at Fall Experiment 2019! IMPORTANT: You must purchase a ticket to Fall Experiment to attend this workshop. Get your ticket here! Workshop Details A product vision that is not clear is expensive and frustrating to build and maintain and rarely results in something good. Models are an excellent tool for making the complex clear. Clarity is all of our jobs, so anyone involved in making digital products should be fluent in how to use and make models as part of their work.  In our workshop, we’ll cover the theory and practice of how to use models to collect and share information through best practices as well as case studies. Participants will learn & practice how to create models that represent their understanding of something that is important to them.  Upon completion, attendees will:  Understand the value of modeling as a process and artifact for making the complex clear.  Understand the fundamentals of why and when to go about the process of modeling.  Working knowledge of best practice tips for creating models to help you understand complex problems.  Understand what makes certain models more or less effective than others.  More About the Instructors Joe Elmendorf Information Architect with The Understanding Group Joe architects places made of information.
