NISO Change Management Webinar Series - The Information Community Adapts - 10.14.20

In the early months of the pandemic, institutions and organizations were forced to make rapid decisions about whether to close, whether or when to re-open, which parts of normal operations might be managed remotely and which would simply have to be dispensed with. Some organizations had emergency preparedness plans that enabled them to adapt swiftly, but others had to become agile as a day-by-day learning experience. The Roundtable Discussion format will bring together stakeholders from across the information community to discuss the decision-making processes they and their organizations used to deal with the pandemic, and the key factors that enabled them to successfully react and adapt to the uncertainty.
