Recent research gives
strong support to the clear need in the marketplace to improve how
workers create, use and derive value from knowledge capital. According to IDC, 1,000 knowledge workers waste $2.5 million a year due to inability to locate or retrieve information.
A critical success factor in
the creation, search, access and useful sharing of knowledge capital is
the development of Taxonomy. Traditional navigation simply is not
enough to deliver targeted content to individuals. Information needs to
be categorized in a way that employees can relate the content to their day-to-day information requirements. Taxonomy development is both an art and a science.
This complimentary white paper, Taxonomy: A Critical Success Factor for Knowledge Management, was written by Dinesh Balam, a Principal Consultant at RTM Consulting. The paper reveals the benefits of a well-defined taxonomy and the key elements needed in the taxonomy design process.
With the rapid growth of unstructured data and information, the need for better management of knowledge capital is essential for the technology industry. Taxonomies can be indispensable tools in helping users locate desired content within a repository. Fill out the form to download your copy now.
