Libraries today face reduced budgets, increased customer expectations, and aggressive competition from web-based information sources. Management guru John Huber, a pioneer and leader in the Lean Manufacturing movement, has worked as a consultant with libraries across North America. Huber shows you how to apply Lean principles and practices -- how making small, simple changes in everyday routines will reap large time- and money-saving results. You'll learn how to: create a culture of change; define and streamline your library's service delivery chains; transform everyday operations like placing customer reserves and technical service processes; implement performance measures that can drive continuous improvement; and apply Lean techniques in digital operations. Ten years of success-proven strategies and success stories from libraries where John Huber has partnered are included throughout.
