Strategic Choices for 2020
Strategic choices and decision-making are a challenge for all directors, deans and senior managers especially in the digital age.
Options and alternatives abound, so how do we choose what best fits for our communities, campuses, corporations and governments?
The new Library Directors Digital Strategy Summit
is an interactive event which includes leading edge thinking, collaborative
opportunities for evaluating different future scenarios, various perspectives and viewpoints, industry experts, and more. Digital
strategy has been defined as the process of specifying an organization's vision, goals, opportunities and initiatives in order to
maximize the business benefits digital investments and efforts provide to the organization. This summit pushes us to clarify our
visions and goals for digital strategy in library environments, shares opportunities and initiatives, and looks carefully at the
benefits our investments can achieve.
This two-day summit is an interactive forum for library directors, CEOs, and CIOs of academic, public, government and special
libraries to problem-solve, discuss, and network with colleagues. It features a mix of high level presentations, expert panels, round
table and facilitated discussions with lots of networking/peer engagement time.
