  1. Quite enjoyed this and I’m eagerly looking forward to the next part in the series since the planning stage is where I’m at with my own project at work.

  2. Wow. Excellent article. I need help with my pantry… and the sites and apps I work on need this help too. I am very much looking forward to the rest of this series!!

  3. Great article Grace! I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Taxonomy is so important in redesigning a site as you need to plan and forecast for future content. This sort of planning allows stakeholders to view their site at a long-term, macro-level- something they often fail to do.

    Thanks,

    1. Totally agreed. Governance seems to be where things just fall off, especially if you’re the consultant on the project. Getting the stakeholders on board and committed for the long run … well, if the content is largely propelled by having that taxonomy/metadata in place, they’ll soon see the value in making sure their content doesn’t become ROT!

  4. Don’t you dare let us down – don’t make this one of those “in the coming months” blog posts that we never see deliver what was promised – you know the kind, we’ve all written them, myself included. : )

    Love this. Go!
