A high-leverage point to give you and your organization a competitive edge is to be Future Ready, that is, to adopt an attitude of being adaptable, flexible, and confident in utilizing the skills of the information and knowledge professional. Being ready for the future enables us to be more connected, relevant and valuable.
It is our ability to learn and adjust that is critical in this dynamically changing information landscape. Cindy will discuss becoming Future Ready by adopting strategies to prepare us for emerging opportunities in the information industry. She’ll discuss examples and bright spots.
