And that is</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 00:10]</p> <p>TaxonomyTaxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?TaxonomyTaxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxonomy ?Taxo</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCETaxonomy. Funny Sounding word, Taxonomy, Well What is taxonomy.?Well sometimes the best way to explain what taxonomy IS, is by highlighting firstly, what Taxonomy is NOT</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:20, Running: 00:30]</p> <p>TaxonomyIs not..Stuffing Fluffy</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCETaxonomy is not, stuffing your dead cat Fluffy (this is the worlds largest cat).</p> <p>Nor</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 00:35]</p> <p>Taxonomy is Not</p> <p>They put-a too much-a Tax-on-a-me!An Italian man complaining about paying too much taxTaxonomyIs not.</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCENor is it an Italian man complaining about paying too much tax. </p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 00:40]</p> <p>6</p> <p>TaxonomyIs.By Definition:</p> <p>Taxonomy (from Greek taxis meaning arrangement or division and nomos meaning law) is the science of classification, naming conventions, according to a pre-determined system, with the resulting catalogue used to provide a conceptual framework for discussion, analysis, or information retrieval.</p> <p>In theory, the development of a good taxonomy takes into account the importance of separating elements of a group (taxon) into subgroups (taxa) that are mutually exclusive, unambiguous, and taken together, include all possibilities. In practice, a good taxonomy should be simple, easy to remember, and easy to use</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCETaxonomy is, by definitionIts derived from the Greek words Taxis meaning Arrangement or Division and Nomos meaning Law. So its a Law of Arrangement, the science of classification and naming conventions.Uses predetermined systems to generate catalogues to provide conceptual frameworks to aid discussion, analysis or information retrieval.</p> <p>In Theory taxonomy separates elements in to groups and subgroups, that are mutually exclusive and unambiguous, but in combination can cover all possibilities.In practice a good taxonomy should be simple, easy to remember, and easy to use.</p> <p>In fact Taxonomy is the </p> <p>[Time: Section: 01:10, Running: 01:50]</p> <p>Oldest ProfessionGenesis 2:19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what He would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20</p> <p>So if God started with taxonomy, maybe we should too..So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to Every beast of the field. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to Every beast of the field. </p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE.. oldest known profession known to man. The Genesis account records that it was the 1st job ever given to man.</p> <p> So If God Started with Taxonomy, Maybe we should too</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:20, Running: 02:10]</p> <p>8</p> <p>Can you think of anythingthat doesn't have a:Name,Classification, or aLabel </p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE Can anyone think of anything that doesnt have a name, label or category?You first have to name it before you can think of it. Every thing from Food, drink, clothing, our children names, colour and shapes, and even our demographics have been named, labelled or categorised.</p> <p>In fact when you think about it. </p> <p>(And you can just think of nothing, but because you first have think of how you classify nothing in order to think about it, so now your thinking about something which you defined as nothing, so its not really nothing buy Something!)</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:25, Running: 02:35]</p> <p>CornerStone</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE taxonomy is the cornerstone that all communication is built from.</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 02:40].10</p> <p>Naming </p> <p>Arranging </p> <p>NamingArranging</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCETaxonomy is the art naming and Arranging</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 02:45]</p> <p>11</p> <p>NamingSearchableFindable</p> <p>SearchableFindable</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCETo make information Searchable and Findable.:Searchable - Knowing What Syntax should be used when searching.And Findable - being able to locate your information with the search results.</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:25, Running: 03:10]</p> <p>12</p> <p>Matching CriterionTrending &amp; Forecasting</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCEAnd is the key catalyst for Matching Criterion, as well as trending and forecasting.</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:05, Running: 03:15]</p> <p>13</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCEYeah its all that, and very interesting, but whats the big deal, why all of the effort?</p> <p>[Time: Section: 00:10, Running: 03:25]</p> <p>14</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCE</p> <p>2010 NATIONALCONFERENCEWell To Tell you the truth, If you get it wrong the results can be disastrous. It could even hurt the people you love.How you may ask?

Moon Unit, Diva Thin Muffin, Its time to come in for dinner</p> <p>And theres more theres Pilot Inspector, Sage Moonblood, Moxie CrimeFighter, Audio Science, Apple</p> <p>..and my personal favourite Jermagisty. A nice masculine name for boy, ladies and gentlemen front row forward of the year Jermadgisty. I wonder what his nick name was Jerm perhaps?</p> <p> MAN THESE ARE NOT NAMES, THESE ARE CURSES.</p> <p>Not only can it hurt the people you love, but it can also impact the town that you live in</p> <p>Welcome to 50 steps.</p> <p>But do this with out even thinking, it only looks like a lot of effort, because breaking it down to individual steps.</p> <p>So a technique used help people who may be overwhelmed and resistant is to do a like for like click count comparison</p> <p>Where you count the clicks required to raise log save retrieve update resolve and close call records in both systems.</p> <p>And compare the two.</p> <p>This information helps remove any potential resistance.</p> <p>[Time: Section: 01:35 Running: 39:45]</p> <p>104</p> <p>8.
