The challenge of knowledge management (KM) is one of context -
understanding the user's frame of reference, mental model, problem solving
approach and stage of process in their work task. We also need to know
something about how people describe the things that they need, and their
understanding of labels that are placed on documents.
All of this points to the need for terminology that is consistent and
multiple facets that can be used to describe all of these various
attributes of content-- in other words, a taxonomy.
As organizations attempt to deal with information chaos, managers are
recognizing the need for organizing principles that can extend across
silos, span the enterprise, and connect disparate systems and
repositories. Taxonomies and other categorization schemes offer solutions
to that chaos.
Hear how taxonomy projects are essential to knowledge management
initiatives, and learn how to apply thesaurus structures to improve the
findability of explicit knowledge, and the ability to locate and leverage
Speakers will focus on the need to define context and process, and how to
apply taxonomies to effectively support KM.
