Dr Vicki Williamson, University of Saskatchewan

Concurrent session 22
Thursday 1 September 2016, 2:30pm - 2:55pm


This paper draws on the decade-long strategic and organizational change experience of a large Canadian research library to address the conference theme of ‘Engage, Create and Lead’. This paper overviews an emerging framework for sustained and successful innovation for the realization of organizational culture change. The framework under development has three interrelated elements at its core: engagement, leadership and innovation.While the presentation will have a focus on academic librarianship in the context of the global post-secondary sector, this emerging framework for engagement, leadership and innovation to effect organizational culture change offers wide applicability for all types of libraries.
