ILOC 2017: Lean Mean Library Machine
Want to learn about doing more with less, streamlining library operations, and implementing a more efficient workflow? Join us for the 2017 edition of Innovative Libraries Online Conference!
Our morning keynote speaker is Teresa Hay McMahon, the Executive Director of the Iowa Lean Consortium (ILC), a non-profit consortium of businesses, government, education and healthcare working to drive competitive performance improvements in Iowa organizations by expanding Lean culture and sharing lessons learned. Lean organizations eliminate waste in processes through active involvement of all employees engaged in non-stop improvement.
The evening keynote speaker is Pat Wagner, a trainer, educator, and consultant for 40 years. She is a manager and producer at Pattern Research, Inc. Pat will speak specifically to the role that Trustees can play in lean, mean, library machines.
Presentations throughout the day will showcase the ways Iowa librarians have implemented "lean" approaches to their work. There will also be a lightning round of "hacks" you can easily integrate for quick results. In addition, vendors will be available in our virtual exhibit hall to answer your questions about a variety of services and products.
Offering keynote speakers, concurrent sessions on a variety of topics, an evening session designed for trustees, and an exhibit hall--all online in Adobe Connect classrooms or a Zoom meeting room--you can attend from your library or from home! Come and go throughout the day, attending the sessions you’re most interested in. A main goal of ILOC is to replicate the "in-person" conference experience but a free option with no travel component.
Sessions will be recorded.
