Overview

Taxonomies are often thought to play a niche role within content-oriented knowledge management projects. They are thought to be ‘nice to have’ but not essential. In this ground-breaking book, Patrick Lambe shows how they play an integral role in helping organizations coordinate and communicate effectively. Through a series of case studies, he demonstrates the range of ways in which taxonomies can help organizations to leverage and articulate their knowledge. A step-by-step guide in the book to running a taxonomy project is full of practical advice for knowledge managers and business owners alike.


  • Written in a clear, accessible style, demystifying the jargon surrounding taxonomies
  • Case studies give real world examples of taxonomies in use
  • Step-by-step guides take the reader through the key stages in a taxonomy project
