Our orgn, a Fortune 500 pharma/medical/nutrition products company, is
considering restructuring the functional team/s for its Search and
Taxonomy businesses, which serve internal business customers (i.e.,
divisions, departments which need Search or Taxonomy services for their
intranet collections) as well as external customers with similar services
for our eBusiness/Marketing Internet websites.
We'd like to consider some practices in action from various industry

the teams into one cross-functional team. We're especially interested in

management functions? Or use other models?
-Do you have people focused on either or both areas of Search vs. Taxo?
-Does your Search &/orTaxo function work together as part of an umbrella
team, or independently?
-Are Search &/or Taxo part of another group, such as your organization's
