Learning can be ethereal and abstract, at the same time and separately. When it comes to employees, organizations need to remember the variations of learning possessed by their workforce and reskill its employees in a way to keep up with the changing technology and culture. Surprisingly enough, taxonomies can help. This interesting topic came to us from ATD Education in their article, “Putting Taxonomies to Work: Skills Tagging for Deep Capability Building and Experiential Learning.”
A taxonomy can connect to the complicated business of learning identifying the variations, challenges and opportunities. With hard skills vs. human skills, it can categorize and classify the appropriate response to a situation.
A controlled vocabulary is needed to ensure that the machine-assisted or fully automated indexing is comprehensive, regardless of what you are indexing. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable. Whether you need to upgrade your existing taxonomy or create one from scratch, we work with you on a taxonomy and thesaurus that meet your needs.
