Organising Knowledge: Taxonomies, Knowledge and Organisational Effectiveness
Taxonomies are often thought to play a niche role in content-oriented knowledge management projects, as many consider them nice to have but not essential. In this groundbreaking book Organising Knowledge: Taxonomies, Knowledge and Organisational Effectiveness, Patrick Lambe illustrates how taxonomies play an integral role in helping organizations coordinate and communicate effectively. Through a series of real-world case studies, decision-making frameworks, and example questionnaires, Lambe demonstrates the wide range of ways in which taxonomies help organizations leverage and articulate their knowledge, and offers a clear description of how taxonomies relate to technology application. Accessible and jargon-free, this step-by-step guide to running a taxonomy project offers practical advice for knowledge managers and business owners alike.
