    To what extent do Library & Information Professionals actively manage change?

    Change is essential for survival. However, it is reported that 70 per cent of change initiatives fail. Organisations are becoming more complex and changing at an unprecedented rate, driven by globalisation, political uncertainty, advancing technologies and economic pressures.

    We are very pleased that Sharon Stewart has agreed to speak about change management in the context of library and information services at this meeting  on 30th April.

    Sharon is an experienced information professional and will be talking about her research into change management.  She is also a member of ISKO UK and a graduate of the innovative CityLIS programme at City, University of London.

    Sharon's study investigates the extent to which Library and Information Professionals actively manage change, which methods they use, and what their attitudes are towards the discipline of Change Management. A mixed-methods research approach was employed comprising of desk research, 108 questionnaires and 10 semi-structured interviews.

    This meeting will take place at the Canada Water Culture Space, just next to the Canada Water tube station on the Jubilee line. The event is free to ISKO UK members and the fee is £5 for non-members (option to pay at the door).
