Too often when we think of a customer, our view is filtered through the lens of our job, profession, department, or specialty. Think of how patients are treated in most hospitals. They are viewed as a disease, an illness, a collection of parts – each with its own specialist. The hospital system is designed for the convenience of the specialists, not for the needs of the patient. Bringing the outside in using customer experience journey maps Customer experience journey maps are a tool to help bring the outside world into an organization. And as we map out the customer’s story, our organization’s own story becomes visible. Below are a few examples of different types of customer experience journey maps.

Complete Beginner's Guide to Information Architecture Complete Beginner's Guide to Information Architecture Timothy Greig structures the information flow of a library website. Photo by Timothy Greig Information architecture is an often misunderstood job title. Are they Designers? Developers? Along the way we’ll share some of the tweeters, books, and resources we found useful for budding information architects. A Common Workplace Scenario An information architect joined my team on a project I worked on in Atlanta. Who is an Information Architect? I find it easiest to derive what a job entails by listening to the people who do that job. Jesse James Garrett says: Information architecture encompasses a wide range of problems.

New York, 1 June 2016 - The chair of the Statistical Commission, Ms. Wasmalia Bivar of Brazil, addressed the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) on 1 June during its Coordination and Management Meeting.

She also informed the Council of the recent work of the High-level Group for Partnership, Coordination and Capacity-Building for statistics for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the plans for a first UN World Data Forum to be held in Capetown, South Africa, in January 2017.

2014 Ranking: 1 Offshoring to India remains a highly attractive proposition for many companies, and it is the undisputed industry leader. Consider, for example, that no fewer than five Chinese handset manufacturers have announced plans to establish R&D centers in India, which is expected to become the world’s second largest buyer of handsets. 2014 Ranking: 2 China is closing in on India, thanks to major gains in educational skills and cultural adaptability. Additionally, the renminbi’s recent drop in value against the U.S. dollar should increase the country’s financial attractiveness. 2014 Ranking: 3 Malaysia holds steady in the ranking, thanks to minor improvements in IP security and compensation costs that give the country a leg up over Brazil. 2014 Ranking: 8 The value of the Brazilian real has slipped from an average exchange rate against the U.S. dollar of 1.95 in 2012 to 2.35 in 2014, reaching 3.50 in August 2015. 2014 Ranking: 5 2014 Ranking: 6 2014 Ranking: 7 2014 Ranking: 4 A.T.

Although blades on the 150-foot wind turbines at the new German offshore Riffgat power plant 9 miles off the North Sea island of Bokum are finally turning, there is one big problem. They are doing so only because they are being powered by onshore fossil-fueled generators to prevent the rotors from corroding in salty air. And why might that be? While half a dozen wind farms are still being built in the North Sea, there are no follow-up contracts. There is little mystery regarding a clear lack of clamor for wind in the energy marketplace. Politicians are getting the message. Speaking at a June 12 energy conference in Berlin, Chancellor Angela Merkel called for scaling back renewable energy subsidies to contain spiraling costs which have now reached around $27 billion per year. Merkel faces September parliamentary elections where big energy bills imposed upon households and businesses are a hot issue. The Problems Aren’t Just Blowing Offshore Why do I say “allegedly?
