• We will draw on the expertise of library and business leaders to explore how creativity and a focus on design can foster more dynamic organizations that respond nimbly to user needs, take advantage of new tools, and develop unique approaches to problem-solving.

• We’ll dive into the sources of impact measures and hear how to use them to understand and articulate the value of an organization’s mis­sion to the community they serve.

• We’ll learn how these approaches are influencing strategic thinking and how they are being deployed successfully in the private sector and in libraries that are setting a new tone for service, including Chicago PL.

Valuable networking time will be balanced with robust programming that spans the high level think­ing to nitty gritty application. The event will be book-ended by opportunities to see these strategies in action, via optional tours of innovation spaces within Chicago Public Library and in the business community beyond.
