SharePoint Design and Taxonomy Best Practices

SharePoint’s flexibility is its greatest strength and its greatest weakness. The capabilities of SharePoint far exceed what users and administrators are accustomed to receiving in a software solution. Given this, when they are first exposed to SharePoint your users may feel intimidated by its complexity. Building a solution architecture right from the very beginning is key to successful adoption. Taxonomy, frequently referred to as the information architecture of your site, is often the most visible and most important tool for SharePoint users to locate information. Building a poor taxonomy will affect the success of your SharePoint implementation in numerous ways, including: search, records management, and solution performance and user experience. Learn how to build an information architecture that will provide an intuitive, clear path for employees to follow when they are adding and seeking information from your SharePoint repository. Following these steps should create greater user adoption and maximize the return on your technology investment. –
