Defining innovation
December 4th, 130-3:00 pm Central Time

Taking the lead on new opportunities at your library doesn’t have to be overwhelming and exhausting. In this webinar we will show you how to approach innovation in a practical way that will have big results. We will break down innovation using Design Thinking steps, which include empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. You may be surprised to discover that two of the innovation skills we will focus on in this webinar are already in rotation in many libraries: empathy and planning.
