What are the strategic benefits of using an external consultant? How can use of a consultant boost your ability to move your organization forward? What happens after the consultant goes?! Join an international team of administrative librarians in learning when to use an external consultant, factors for funding and how to leverage recommendations from work with a consultant to successfully move your organization forward. The presenters will provide examples drawn from their experience working with R2 Consulting LLC and the implementation of recommendations from their report “Workflow Analysis: From Selection-to-Access” presented to the University of Lethbridge Library in April 2009.
Participants will be exposed to the cycle of preparation, participation, and implementation of working alongside a consultant.
Presenters will share their experience with immediate tangible benefits as well as the future benefits that can accrue from the practical and cultural changes that happen along the way.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, share their experiences and apply lessons learned to their specific workplace challenges.
Sessions outcomes will include:
1. Participants will gain exposure to leadership strategies for driving and managing change.
2. Participants will learn how to make the case for, and gain valuable expertise from, external consultants.
3. Participants will learn to move beyond the recommendations to leverage additional operational and cultural changes that can happen as implementation becomes reality.
