A presentation by Olga Koz at the Kansas Library Association, College and University Libraries Section (CULS) Spring 2014 Conference. The rapid pace of change in today's higher education environment creates pressure within an academic library to implement change, new programs, strategy, and technology in order to meet the demands of its stakeholders. Studies have shown that approximately 70% of organizational innovations fail. One of the main causes for these failures is the lack of a thorough diagnostic investigation of stakeholders’ needs, university or college environment. A thorough diagnostic examination includes both an external and internal analysis using some form of assessment. The presenter, a Doctor of Management, OD consultant, and an academic librarian, briefly describes the usual library assessment tools and discuss non-traditional diagnostic methods.
