Drilling Down to the Challenges of a SharePoint Taxonomy Implementation
Original Broadcast Date:  Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Although most organizations have SharePoint in place, very few have taken care to structure the information architecture of their environment, and with good reason: doing so can be challenging using SharePoint's native e tools and d capabilities. In this webinar, Hlava and Shepley explain the main challenges organizations face when trying to implement a taxonomy in their SharePoint environment as well as some of the best practices they can use to succeed.
