Consistent ways of filing, finding & managing all content


We use a proven methodology to engage with teams to get the "file and find" simplicity they need, as well as organisation-wide consistency, be it a make-over or starting afresh.

Process & Tools

Run lively and engaging workshops with teams to build the taxonomy live. Following this, the taxonomy gets tightened up and then tested against real content.

FASC Modelling

We use the Function-Activity-SubActivity-Case model to simplify filing and finding for users. This includes identifying and explicitly building in important case files.

Other hierarchies are also catered for, depending on the organisation. This can include: geographic location, teams, subject matter expertise, assets.

Thinking Ahead

We believe in building retention & disposal into the taxonomy upfront to drive the rules and actions that determine when content is disposed right from the start.
