Busch’s golden law of facets: “Four facets of 10 nodes
each have the same discriminatory power as one taxonomy of 10,000 nodes.”


Taxonomy Strategies guides global companies, government agencies, international organizations and not-for-profits such as Nike, Oracle, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the International Monetary Fund and Harvard Business Publishing in developing metadata frameworks and taxonomy strategies. We provide a very high level of expertise to our clients.
