Example text

The culture of the MAL values its librarians and library staff. Repeatedly, when the members of the library were asked to talk about what they liked best about their library, a variation of this response was repeated: their co-workers. Those who work in the library are all passionate about the profession of librarianship and working at the MAL. The librarians and LTAs interviewed love the variety in their jobs. Many remarked that they rarely do the same thing from one day to the next.

The role the leadership training, people planning, and project management methodology have played in empowering staff can be seen in the increased participation on committees and taskforces and in the management of library operations. Conclusion Assessing organizational culture is a necessary first step in organizational change. Analysing the current and preferred cultures of a library makes it possible to develop and implement strategies that will move the library toward the desired culture. Systematically managing a culture change involves engaging library staff in a process of discovering or revealing cultural perceptions and understanding and actively discussing, codifying, and agreeing upon appropriate new behaviors and activities.
