The workshop will be divided into two parts:

  1. Introduction to information taxonomy for business
  2. A masterclass in the application of a taxonomy in the workplace including governance, management, application and extension.

The masterclass will use real project examples to help participants become familiar with the key uses of taxonomies in the workplace. It will address what needs to be considered in their design, creation, use, management and extension of an enterprise Taxonomy and its relationship to information and knowledge management business and systems processes. Practical examples will be provided throughout the day helping participants understand the numerous applications of taxonomy to navigation, other online presentation devices, to metadata and to user-centred information delivery.

About the workshop:
Taxonomy is a type of information scaffolding which helps pull business and applications together to meet the strategic vision. The taxonomy structures manage terminology, word and value sets for use across all other areas of the information and other enterprise architectures. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a solid understanding of taxonomy, its relationship to other information systems and architectures and how it can be applied. Participants will leave the workshop understanding the concepts of taxonomy and its relationship to enterprise information management. Janet will demonstrate why introducing enterprise taxonomy management to an organisation is important for customers, staff and other business stakeholders.
