Abstract:
From the mid-1990s through 2004, the University of Kentucky Libraries were organized in a team-based organizational structure. The team structure was implemented in concert with the opening of the new main library, and its focus was on service centers that featured rotating leadership and management by consensus. Over the course of six or seven years, the model thrived in some units and created difficulty in others. Find out about the process of reorganizing a library from a team-based structure, and discover how a small working group developed a new organization focusing on users, work redesign, and accountability. Learn the basic steps in a system-wide work redesign process and complete a brief assessment of your library's readiness for work redesign.
