Change management is a topic that has grown in interest especially within a library context. Faced with ever competing demands on resources, implementing new initiatives, and demonstrating value within the broader organization, libraries live in a constant state of flux. This course will help you navigate the myriad of change models that exist while identifying strategies to effectuate transformational change-one which is self-sustaining, occurs system-wide, and involves both internal and external stakeholders. You will work on identifying your organization's readiness for change as well as specific strategies to implement and assess how your organization has evolved. As part of this course, participants will:
- Analyze change models and focus on the core elements that pertain to all of them
- Assess organizational capacity for change
- Implement an ecosystem approach to managing change
- Determine the impact of change across the organization
