Ideas Space launch
1st idea completed
Let's evaluate the project, our strategies, and what we want to do next.
Progress report
Library purchased a University license in December 2012.
Pilot testing commenced at the same time.
The site was fine-tuned during the testing period.
Library purchased IdeaScale
Expected completion
The project team ran two competitions in the lead up to the official launch.
The winners of the logo design competition were Taysha Barrett and Lynne Harrison-Gee from LRD, who collaborated on the design and won a $100 Coles Group gift card.
Single sign-on configuration for Ideas Space was completed late February 2013.
The winner of the system naming competition was Karen Mann from LRD, she won 2 movie tickets. Winning name was "Ideas Space".
The first idea was completed on 20 April. It took only 26 days to implement an idea that could potentially reduce the staff workload of Document Delivery services by 18%!
In May 2013, the Library Management Committee supported the project team's recommendations in the staff engagement plan.
LMC also agreed to review ideas that have 10 votes and 2 comments.
We're here!
The project is expected to complete in September 2013.
Our targets
Run an idea competition every semester, each focus on a theme or a question to stimulate discussions and facilitate brainstorming. Example themes: "Digital Literacy", "Staff Training", "What can we do to keep the kitchen and fridge clean and tidy?". Prizes and recognition such as certificate can be used as incentives.
If an idea is going ahead, involve staff in decision making and implementation of the idea. Give staff the opportunity to run or participate in the implementation of their ideas will not only lighten the workload of the LMC, but also provide staff with more opportunity to grow and learn new skills.
A "soft launch" of Ideas Space for clients is our next milestone. Library survey is good but Ideas Space is a good tool to collect feedback, issues, and ideas as they happen.
Are we ready for it? Do library staff want it?
Reward staff member who demonstrates the spirit of Ideas Space. We can use the objectives of Ideas Space as guidelines, winner of this award doesn't necessarily have the best idea, but they participate and contribute to the community constructively and made a difference that way.
