When it comes to employees, organizations need to remember the variations in learning of their workforces and reskill their 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 a searcher/learner not only with wanted information but with needed information. It can help with identifying hard skills and human skills, and it can categorize and classify the appropriate response to a query.
A controlled vocabulary is needed to ensure that machine-assisted or fully automated indexing is comprehensive, regardless of what is indexed. 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.
