Event Name:
Addressing the Challenges of Retaining Institutional Knowledge

Institutional knowledge and library leadership skills are quickly exiting libraries through retirement, job mobility, and routine turnover. How can we best deal with this knowledge loss? Through succession planning, building bench strength, and focusing on the strengths and knowledge of exiting employees, organizations can create a dynamic process for providing employees with the resources and support they need to grow into new roles. 
Learning Objectives:
In this workshop, participants will: 
  • Understand and appreciate the need for succession planning at all levels 
  • Learn what it means to build your “bench strength” and how to get started 
  • Discover ways to encourage tenured staff to share their institutional knowledge and help with the development of emerging leaders within the organization
