Purposeful Innovation: Idea Management for Libraries<http://click.e.oclc.org/?qs=3587234fe13c30b2f7daf7a76a52e17d909247e2a26c59b333d66f27fdf4a81d>
Sooner or later, all libraries need to realign or reinvent services and workflows to respond to shifting community needs, but there's often a disconnect between ideas generated by staff on the front lines and the decisions made by management. Imagine a library where all staff feel empowered to submit, vote and comment on service and workflow ideas. To reach this ideal, Sno-Isle Libraries (WA) has embraced the idea management process in order to consider and approve ideas holistically, for cost, benefit and time, and before a heavy investment of resources. Sno-Isle Libraries realized that building a collaborative, transparent framework to support workflows, change, ideas and community engagement is essential to creating a culture of purposeful innovation. During this webinar, you'll gain a clear understanding of the "what" and "why" of idea management, hear lessons learned, and leave with tools to empower staff to lead from any position by sharing their ideas.
3:00-4:00 pm Eastern Time

As our profession transforms and our work changes, nurturing skillful and competent supervisors has become a priority for all types of libraries. Rising to the challenge, many people are creating and offering learning and development programs in their libraries. If you are interested in developing supervisor training programs for your library, get this one-day, free symposium on your calendar! This online event, consisting of three sessions (attend one or all), will bring together some of the most effective practices for supporting supervisor development. You'll hear from a variety of different libraries about their programs so that you can begin thinking about offering your own. Get all the details about this special online symposium on the website.
