A workshop about building taxonomies with a bit of extra fun
Are you a UX researcher, designer, or product manager looking for better ways to organize your customer research data and insights? Are you planning to or are in the process of building a Research repository? 🤔
👉If so, this workshop is for you!
We hosted the one and only Eloise Marszalek, Lead Taxonomist at Udemy.
Eloise designs extensive and comprehensive taxonomies for a living and fun. Part of that involves defining new structured data elements to unlock personalization capabilities, building the semantic foundations for a knowledge graph for learning, and solving findability and product differentiation problems. Previously, Eloise worked at LinkedIn as Taxonomy Tech Lead and as a Search and Taxonomy Analyst at Kaiser Permanente.
Eloise helped us understand:
- Why taxonomies matter and how to think about them
- Common challenges when building a taxonomy
- The problem with hierarchies
- Practical ways of evolving your taxonomy over time
- The importance of tools
🚨 Bonus! Show and Tell + Q&A Sessions 📺
