In UNICEF we are planning to develop an organizational taxonomy (or taxonomies).

I am looking to hear other's experience with this (eg: how long did it take to have something? what were the costs? what were some of the challenges? etc). We will likely need to employ a taxonomy consultant for this and if anyone has suggestions of people or firms that we might contact it would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help!
