After going through numerous taxonomy projects, I’ve learned a few things about how to work with stakeholders and subject matter experts to build a website taxonomy. The most important thing to remember when building a taxonomy is that the subject matter experts aren’t information specialists. As taxonomists, we bring the skill of how to organize. Subject matter experts and stakeholders bring the knowledge of the domain. Bring these two things together and great things can happen!
