This is a special invite to attend our September 9, 2016 2nd Friday Session, Managing Change in Information Organizations from the Inside Out. We received feedback in almost every LYRASIS Leadership Forum that managing change, whether its change in staff, budgets, direction, software, is something that staff struggle with no matter how large the scope of change may be. We have found this great session from Rajesh Singh that may help all of us with change and managing it within our organizations. Rajesh Singh is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Library and Information Science at St. John’s University, New York. His teaching and research is focused in the areas of leadership, management, and organizational behavior. change lights

This presentation will shed light on how Heath and Heath’s “Switch” framework (2010) can ease the path to lasting change in libraries and information organizations by understanding and tapping into the emotional aspects of managing change. Case studies of change management initiatives from a public and an academic library will be discussed in the context of the “Switch” framework. These case studies demonstrate different approaches to change management—one that was ultimately a success and one that still faced challenges. The drivers for successful change will become clearer through the analysis of these case studies. The goal is to provide a framework for participants to build good organizational habits and drive successful change in their own information organizations.

This session is free and will be recorded. Register today!
