Several years ago (2003 - 2005) when I was an Information Architect at Creo (a once-upon-a-time tech darling in BC that got bought out by Kodak) I learned a very valuable lesson about the weight that data and evidence carried over my in-depth knowledge of the content and IA (information architecture) of the site.

Companies spend a lot of money developing a navigation structure but often do not spend much time testing it with users.

The subject of information architectures based on audience types has cropped up around the office a lot lately. A number of our clients are talking about it. It is a popular approach, one that seems to logically support user-centered design principles. But it is an approach that can reduce the findability success rate of a site and disrupt the user experience.
