Library leaders, at all levels, must make critical decisions with cascading consequences for the future of the library organization. Human beings are often innately poor decision makers, so it behooves library leaders to better understand the dynamics of decision making. In this presentation, Steven J. Bell , (2012-2013 President of ACRL), will share decision-making theory that provides perspectives on the weaknesses of our decision-making abilities. Advocating for a thoughtful, deliberative style that is neither too rational/analytic nor too intuitive, Bell will provide practical suggestions for how library leaders can improve their skills to make better decisions that will lead to better libraries.
