Keynote speaker Rick Luce talk is titled: Thriving in Chaos: A Strategic Approach to Enable Organizational Innovation
Abstract
: How does an organization internationally recognized for its pioneering digital library technologies and unqualified success at supporting research customers foster innovation? A decade ago the Research Library at Los Alamos National Laboratory adopted a new approach to managing our organization termed Strategic Business Management. Using a quality-based approach to reconceptualize how we work, our strategic business concepts have been systematically refined over the past decade. Successful libraries in the future will proactively anticipate, deeply understand, and aggressively respond to user needs. As those needs become increasingly diverse, methods to strategically anticipate and focus the organization become critical for long term success.

This talk traces some of the development and evolutionary stages of a research library repositioned to adapt to continuous change in the environment. A glimpse under the hood at LANL's Research Library will share approaches and lessons learned in the development of a strategic context to re-examine how well your library is positioned to thrive in chaos.
