CKS - Taxonomy (Online) for New Students

Format: Online, for New Students - Welcome!


Become a Taxonomy Master through Immersive Training from a Global Expert on Taxonomy Design.


In today's information systems, an organization's business users are more
active than ever in the creation, publication, identification, and consumption
of information.  Though this democratization of content management holds
a great deal of power and opportunity for an organization, it also presents
a challenge.

As more content gets added, search and browse - overall information findability
- can suffer.  A well-designed business taxonomy can address these issues.0

The Rationale

Taxonomies can improve the findability of information, improving search and browse as well as the broader
user experience.  A business taxonomy can also lead to the discovery of content users weren’t aware of, thereby revealing efficiencies that would have otherwise gone unrealized.
Most organizations are not equipped with the knowledge or experience to successfully design and implement business taxonomies. The Taxonomy Design Master Class will arm your organization with the knowledge to move forward addressing this critical knowledge management challenge.

Who Should Attend?

Ideal for anyone tasked to lead or refresh a taxonomy, or anyone who will be managing a content management effort where taxonomy will play a part.

Taxonomy Master participants range from business user to IT experts, and from newcomers to seasoned practitioners, project managers to CKOs, public/private sectors, and just about everyone in-between.

Learn To…

Communicate the concepts of taxonomy and metadata in both business and technical terms
Educate your organization on the value and potential returns on investment of proper taxonomy design
Facilitate taxonomy design workshops for your own organization
Manage a taxonomy design project, from start to finish, for your organization
Sustain your taxonomies, ensuring they evolve in an effective manner to support the business
In short, you will gain the necessary knowledge to lead your company or agency on the right path.
Are you ready to get started?
