Transcript of Digital leadership skills

2. Set up an online group
LinkedIn or Google+ group
Invite-only, visible to members only (at least to start with)
All SCL members invited - but you choose to opt-in

WHY? Direct channel to those most interested, most likely to respond, to take part in workshops later in the process
Also makes the process visible and influence-able despite timing
3. Initial horizon scanning
Define scope of "significant digital developments" - more specific

Then horizon-scanning using two methods:

Desk based review
Online survey

End product - horizon-scanning paper
Horizon scanning paper
4. Online workshops
1. Project inception
Started testing the 'pinwheel' - which works...
...but makes us think we need to ask "What" and also "Why" (mock-up using Surveymonkey)
Desk review
Using same "What" and "Why" framework
...Based on desk research and the survey of SCL members (perhaps others too)

Digital developments (in terms of community spaces, books, learning etc)

WHY these are significant for libraries

Ideas for action
The purpose of public libraries
“That as in this institution, special provision has been made for the working classes, by means of a free lending library, this meeting cherishes the earnest hope that the books thus made available will prove a source of pleasure and improvement in the cottages, the garrets, and the cellars of the poorest of our people.”
(Charles Dickens' speech at the opening ceremony September 2nd, 1852)
Ben Lee and Kevin Fenning
Shared Intelligence
Agree and confirm our approach
Horizon scanning
Skills implications
Skills audit
Ideas for action
Crystalising and communicating how digital can be used to meet library services' core purposes

Setting direction outside traditional hierarchies

Enabling and empowering frontline staff to exploit technology

Identifying rewarded-risks to take
Digitally-enabled senior management sets the tone

We have far greater affinity with tech if we use it personally (like Facebook/Android story)
Leadership skills, more than technical skills
Involve the "local government geek" crowd?

e.g. organisers of local government hackdays, leaders of local government open-data projects, digital citizen-engagement initiatives

or even people like Tinder Foundation/UKOnline, Young Rewired State, Carnegie UK Trust ('final fifth' work), etc
