Taxonomy development for information managers


Taxonomies support the exchange of information between systems, and between people and systems. They provide structure and consistency.

Without taxonomies, information systems would be a free for all and findability would be non-existent. When users call their system a black hole, it means the taxonomy isn’t fit for purpose.

So how do you design best practice taxonomies that enable users to get the most from your information systems? How do you create and maintain a taxonomy that works?

This training course will show you how.
