Knowledge Management: How to Gather, Save, and Make Use of the Wisdom and Experience of Longtime, Smart, and Wise Library Personnel
November 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Across California libraries are experiencing significant shifts in personnel, a changing of the guard that includes longtime leaders and managers. The challenge? Decades of experience are walking out the door as a new generation arrives, and more resignations are anticipated. How can libraries prepare for a significant loss of institutional wisdom? What needs to be documented, organized, and shared? Who needs to know? Is a formal “knowledge management” initiative or even necessary?Join us for this live, interactive, and practical discussion of the issues around succession and knowledge management strategies during the Big Library Migrations!
Topics include how can library staff maintain productivity while having to train and orient new directors, bringing leaders up to speed regarding political realities in their communities and institutions, catching up on existing and new paperwork, and preparing for and making those strategic shifts that go along with fresh eyes.
Have your own questions about knowledge management and succession planning? Submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the discussion.
