Help Me With My Experience Design Diagram?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for some feedback on a model I'm building to explain the complexity of experience design. My theory is that in the communication business, we're all experience designers and that we come at that from different disciplines. To build the best experiences, we have to have time and space for collaboration. Nothing groundbreaking, but I'd like to bring some different teams together around a common goal.

I've got some feedback from people outside the field, but I'd really like to know what you think. The diagram and comments I've recieved so far are here:

NYT Magazine Article on Interruption Science

Mark, an HCI researcher] says, "far worse than I could ever have
imagined." Each employee spent only 11 minutes on any given project
before being interrupted and whisked off to do something else. What's
more, each 11-minute project was itself fragmented into even shorter
three-minute tasks, like answering e-mail messages, reading a Web
page or working on a spreadsheet. And each time a worker was
distracted from a task, it would take, on average, 25 minutes to
return to that task.

Corporate website redesign, where to put intranet access?

Perhaps call the employe login link: "Remote Employee Login", as
that sounds like what it does.

Instead of "Corporate Information", perhaps "About [companyname]"

I've seen the "graphics" section of many corporate web sites
called "Press Kit", "Media Kit", and "[companyname] In The
News", depending on what's really there, and for whom it's
