Keynote: Innovation & the Knowledge Ecosystem

Dave Snowden, Founder & CSO, Cognitive Edge – There are three necessary preconditions to innovation: starvation (or scarcity, perhaps need—a shortage of resources where usually there is abundance), pressure (or urgency—an immediate and relentless demand for resolution of the scarcity—a changing world), and perspective shift (new ways of thinking about the problem). We know that libraries are a part of the knowledge ecosystem but how can they be more innovative so they are recognized as having an impact on that knowledge ecosystem? How can they help others innovate more? And how can libraries gain new perspectives and types of thinking? Our popular speaker will challenge your thinking and supply some interesting insights.

Gather insights and ideas to ignite your imagination and spark innovation at the 19th annual Internet Librarian conference and exhibition as we focus on the new roles and directions that information professionals are taking within the “info service biz”.
