Card sorting is a useful exercise for designing information architecture, workflows, menu structure, or web site navigation paths.
Card sorting sessions can go a long way towards organizing content beyond theory. It can show how users make use of the information. User-centric design increases customer satisfaction and that helps new and repeat business.
In essence, card sorting works as follows:
✓ Write down topics on an index card. Topics can be phrases, words, etc., and can be very specific or more general.
✓ Group them into piles.
✓ Collate the results, and make use of them when completing the information design.
We want to see what groupings of cards make sense. Please name each group of cards once we have grouped them.
It most important to speak out loud while working.
