Description

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. In a changing information landscape, it is our ability to learn and adjust that is critical. My initiative as SLA President is to encourage information professionals to become Future Ready by adopting strategies that will prepare us for emerging opportunities in the information industry. I’ll discuss examples of some bright spots.
