Many public libraries and institutions of higher learning have handed over the responsibility of library planning to non-librarians. The library and the librarians now have to empower themselves with knowledge management techniques to create new services and advocate for important and relevant services.

This Webinar will facilitate a discussion of change management approaches using proven library planning methodologies: problem solving, measuring project attributes, recognizing and discriminating between contingencies, and other related workflow operations.

Change management is one of LLAMA's 14 Foundational Leadership Competencies.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, participants will understand how to use knowledge management strategies to:

  • Develop social capital
  • Measure communities of practice
  • Measure project attributes
  • Use emotional intelligence methods for planning and operating library services
