Master Class sessions, which are new this year, will cover advanced topics geared toward management- and executive-level professionals. In “Revolutionary Learning Organizations,” one of 10 Master Class presentations scheduled at SLA 2015, Stacey and Leslie will explore the characteristics of organizations that support innovative learning and knowledge creation. Drawing on their extensive experience and research, they’ll discuss risk taking and other core values of learning organizations, highlight best practices, and identify future directions and issues.

“Too often in academic libraries, we rely on committees to plan new or expanded services,” Stacey says. “These committees often get bogged down with minor details or the way we’ve always done things, and they end up spinning their wheels instead of moving forward. In interviews with innovative academic library leaders, a common thread emerged—we need to think like start-ups do. These library leaders recommend launching a service first, then re-tooling as you go along. Assessment? That’s something we all have to do, but successful leaders often focus on assessment planning AFTER launching the service.”
