ADKAR Model - Change Management

Thursday, 28 August 2014

Another session I attended at the ILTA 2014 conference was Ways To Succeed or Screw Up Your Legal Tech Deployments, and while there were several points of interest in this panel discussion, I want to point to one in particular. 

It has been some time since we have written about Change Management on this blog. One of the points discussed in this presentation was the ADKAR model by Prosci Inc. (see full presentation here).

Contentment at #ILTA14

A little bit of wordplay does a body good. I am, of course, referring to the ILTA 2014 session tagged as #INFO06: Content-ment: One Step Beyond Content Aggregation.

This session was one of three organising by Steve Lastres, wanting to focus on the breadth of outcomes possible from a good combination of technology and human input. The right tools, used in the right way, for a tailored, seamless and high value outcome. 

In this particular session Jan O'Grady, Meredith Mulligan and Adam Severson told the audience about their use of content curation: how it is done and why. 

Google: Not a Library

Written by Rebecca Gebhardt Wednesday, 20 August 2014

Most of you will have seen the Chicago Tribune article that has been making the rounds: Google can't compete with a skilled librarian steeped in information technology.

Assuming you have already read and discussed the piece, I will not re-iterate the thesis here except to quote the person being interviewed as to his general views on librarianship:

"I think of my job as very much going to the root of librarianship, which is facilitating learning," said Jacobsen, 38, who earned a Masters of Library and Information Science from Dominican University in 2008. "We are facilitating learning and creating community. The main difference is that I (and my library) are moving well beyond just books, as are many other libraries."
