Continuous Improvement Trumps Strategy: How to Become a Learning Organization (Fast Forward Libraries)

Learn how to ground your library’s plan in systems thinking and learning organization practices. Creating a living plan that’s adaptive and responsive from the inside out will help your library and community learn and grow together!

In this workshop, I will offer up 10 key rules about composition that artists know and that analysts (and the rest of us) can apply when presenting data.
