Makes IA more meaningful and fun

My entire time as a UX Designer (10+ years), I have worked on systems of increasing complexity. I wanted to dig deeper into OOUX because not only did I want to be able to learn new techniques to unravel complexity, but I want to also be able to explain that complexity to my teammates and stakeholders. The ORCA process provides a visual framework that is scalable to fit any busy schedule and timeline. In other words, it makes the information architecture process more meaningful and fun!
