In the spring of 2013, a three-part blog post series I wrote called “Effective Taxonomy Governance” was published on the Term Management website.
The goal of the series is to do a quick overview of a taxonomy governance initiative focusing on the three main groups (Taxonomist, IT/System and Enterprise) that need to work together- and what they need to achieve- in order for the project to be successful.
Part I talks about the role of the taxonomist in effectively governing a taxonomy.
Part II discusses IT’s role and the importance of selecting the right Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system for the initiative.
Part III emphasizes the role of the Enterprise in taking responsibility for the success of the taxonomy initiative and enforcing the governance provisions.
