Sometimes, an application’s navigation can feel a bit like a closet. Things hang there that don’t belong and we can’t find what we want. Over time, changes and modifications force the user to memorize and understand an arcane logic. That’s when complexity emerges and everyone starts to demand a better design.
Hagan will show you a novel and fun way to explore the navigation of your application, by relying on an old tool: the map. Her visualization technique opens up your navigation, so you can see things about your design that you’ve never noticed before.
Using her mapping technique, Hagan will show you how she’s found critical missing elements to the design, which were making it harder for the users and for the designers. You’ll see how to show everyone in your organization the overall structure of your application, how users move through the screens to accomplish tasks, and where new navigation needs to go.
