  • How to get from HERE to THERE…
  • THE BIG IDEA:
    • A library should cultivate a "culture of innovation ... and establish a process for proposing innovation."
    • - Deb Schmidle, ACRL webinar, April 2008.
  • INNOVATION
    • It’s the THINKING not the THING
    • Examples:
      • Code Game
      • Learning 2.0
      • Wireless keyboards
      • Staffwiki
      • Turn off computers during break
  • 2 Things:
    • 1. Cultivate a culture of ideas
    • 2. Have a process for proposing ideas
  • What if all your Library Dreams Could Come True?
  • Where would you take your idea?
    • We didn’t know, either.
  • Things would have to CHANGE.
  • Culture, Step 1: The Dean announces a new initiative
      • We will foster innovation and creativity
      • We will help ideas become reality
      • We will train everyone how to do that.
      • We will accept that innovation is necessary
  • Culture, Step 2: continuous training
  • Culture, Step 3: Create a Process
    • More on this later….
  • Culture: Step 4: Praise to the inno-Beta-ers
  • Process: In a perfect world:
    • 1. Ideas are encouraged and welcomed.
    • 2. Submitting ideas is simple.
    • 3. Evaluation is quick and effective.
    • 4. Feedback is timely, constructive, and informative.
    • 5. Implementation is rapid and smooth.
    • 6. Ideas are reviewed for additional potential.
    • 7. People are recognized, and success is celebrated.
    • 8. Idea system performance is measured, reviewed, and improved.
  • Process : Where do ideas go to get heard?
    • We propose: a REALLY simple form on the wiki
  • Process: The Form:
    • BIG IDEA PROPOSAL
    • Big Idea: ____________________________________________________
    • ____________________________________________________________
    • Proposed by : ________________________________________________
    • Who/what will be impacted? List positive and negative changes, what problem solved? What department (s) work would be influenced? Overall outcome? What investment/costs are involved?
    • ___________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________
    • I have requested _____________________________ as my immediate supervisor to review this proposal.
    •  
    • Date submitted to committee __________________________________________________________________________________________
    • Action ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    • Archived ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  • Process : Who hears the ideas? We propose: the LC or a subset of the LC
  • Process: Then what happens?
    • The Idea Group helps the proposer collaborate
    • The proposer keeps the idea alive or finds herself a “champion”
    • It’s political; just say so
  • Process :Communication
    • Track ideas that come in
    • Track timeliness of responses
    • Track what’s happened so far
    • Track implementations
    • Track “compost”
    We think this could all be on the wiki
  • Process: Persistance
    • Change is slow.
    • Years not months.
    • Culture shift
  • Process: Assess
    • We will always be looking for ways to do it better.
  • QUESTIONS
  • Can’t I just go to my boss and get the thing done?
    • Sure! (now record it on the wiki!)
    • What if it’s bigger than your department?
    • What if someone says “No”?
    • What if you don’t know how yet?
  • Why can’t things just stay the same?
    • Google
    • Iphone
    • Recession
    • Amazon
    • Wikipedia
    • Web 2.0
  • Who would hold the process accountable?
    • I will
  • Where would we get the money?
    • From things we don’t need to do.
    • From people who get excited about what we are doing.
    • From a university that sees how ESSENTIAL we are.
    • Some ideas don’t cost a cent
  • How would Big Things happen?
    • Trial
    • Failure / Success
    • Over
    • And over
  • The new world is perpetual Beta.
  • Be the Change You Want to See
    • Our group’s big idea
    • Was to imagine a way to make more big ideas happen.
    • For that, we propose a Big Idea Group (=L.C.).
    • Today, we are asking you to BE the Big Idea Group
    • And consider our big idea
    • With the kind of consideration you would use on other big ideas .
    • How can we collaborate?
    • This is hard, isn’t it?
