Design thinking and lean startup systems are rich in low-tech tools for changemakers. Simple techniques such as affinity mapping, decision matrices, and prototyping can be used by any library staff person for the discussion of new ideas, to spark creativity, or to rejuvenate existing programs. Session facilitators will explain how the tools work and share examples of how they have been useful in a library setting. The session will end with 30-minutes of hands-on practice with librarian-coaches. Co-sponsored by the Library Entrepreneurship & Maker Services MIG and the Center for the Future of Libraries.
