McMaster University Libraries: Transforming our Future

Transformation Team

The Transformation Team worked from September – November, 2006 to “develop a new transformative model…directly aligned with our academic faculties and the strategic directions of the University.”

Members of the Transformation Team were:

The Team:

  • met with library staff individually and in groups
  • submitted an internal organizational audit to the University Librarian

and wrapped up its work in mid- November.

  1. […] McMaster University Library in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) is one example of a more interactive approach to the shaping of strategy and the conducting of strategic conversations regarding transformation. Director, Jeff Trzeciak, has started a blog to open these conversations with the McMaster community. He has also established a Transformation Team to develop recommendations to him and to the rest of the Libraries regarding how to respond to the external environment they find themselves in. […]

  2. […] McMaster University Libraries: Transforming our Future is a blog by a Transformation Team of librarians at McMaster (the university I teach at) around the (long overdue) transformation of our library. It’s great to see organizations like our library opening up their thinking to their clients. Open administration – where groups negotiating change expose their thinking to their stakeholders – is a trend that should be encouraged. […]

  3. Can we be told more about the consultants who have been hired and what their mandate is? Unless I’ve missed it, I don’t think this information has been circulated.

  19. I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
    and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

    Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

    http://tinyurl.com/38sojf

    This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
    Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

    Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

    You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
    Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
    there as low as 75% off sticker price.

  40. Новый способ давления на кандидата на пост Главы г. Химки

    Новый способ “наказать” тех, кто посмел участвовать в выборной кампании не на стороне действующей власти изобрели правоохранительные органы г.о. Химки.
    Руководствуясь не нормой закона, а чьей-то “волей” сотрудники милиции решили “проверить” все фирмы, внесшие денежные средства в избирательный фонд неудобных кандидатов.
    Начались “проверки” с телефонных звонков – где директор, сколько человек работает на фирме. После чего последовали “письма счастья” с просьбой предоставить всю бухгалтерскую документацию, учредительные документы фирмы, и даже, план экспликации БТИ.
    Такие запросы химкинским фирмам рассылает 1 отдел Оперативно-розыскной части № 9 Управления по налоговым преступлениям ГУВД Московской области за подписью начальника подполковника милиции Д.В. Языкова.
    И всё это в то время, когда Президент дал прямое указание правоохранительным органам о прекращении всех незаконных проверок малого и среднего бизнеса. С это целью внесены изменения в Федеральный закон “О милиции” – из статьи 11 этого закона исключены пункты 25 и 35, на основании которых ранее правоохранительные органы имели право проверять финансово-хозяйственную деятельность предприятий.
    Видно, об изменениях действующего законодательства местные правоохранительные органы не уведомлены. И не смотрят телепередачи с выступлениями Президента.
    Может быть, эта публикация подвигнет их к исполнению указаний Президента, а также к изучению и соблюдению действующего законодательства

  48. Boxing is one of the oldest sports known already in ancient Rome and Greece [1]. He was known in the Games in old Greece. Unchanging Fighting two players were merest beastly and over ended in death. These struggles, without any specified rules, had teeny to do with play, which was born in 1719 in England. At that chance, James Figg, considered the foremost combatant in the adventures of England, founded in Tottenham Court Avenue in London “academy” of boxing. Fighting did not wear gloves and asked blows until one of them knock to the forces [2]. Jack Broughton, who in 1730 replaced the Figge, representing 18 years retained the rubric and from the word go codified the rules of the caper grounds. Shaken close to death in the gong one of his opponents, George Stevenson, formulated and implemented a stage set of rules known as the Broughton’s Rules. Gloves, today the cardinal ascribe of a boxer, only appeared in 1881. In 1916 it was an important decision to limit the legitimate fighting for the championship to 15 rounds of three minutes each, with breaks jednominutowymi. For lovers of the modus operandi is reduced to three three-minute rounds. In the 80s Twentieth century, as a consequence of the star-crossed cessation of Korean boxer Kim Duk-koo, professional fighting is limited to 12 rounds.
    Non-professional boxing [edit]

    As an dabbler boxing gambol holds a important circumstances in the Olympic unwritten law, appeared in low-down as initial as 1904, at the Olympics in St. Louis, and was missing however straight away, in 1912 (right to the prohibition on the relaxation in Sweden). He returned at the next Olympics in Antwerp (1920). Profuse masterly planet heavyweight champions had been Olympic champions – including Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Straw boss, brothers Michael and Leon Spinks, Lennox Lewis and Vladimir Klyczko.

    In 1946 he founded the Cosmopolitan Layman Boxing Association (AIBA). It currently has for 190 members (ie national boxing associations). Since 1974, second to the aegis of organized layman world championships.
    Disagreement [edit]

    Teeth of the multifarious changes – to rehabilitate judging methods and speculator fit out the boxers and medical misery – accidents in boxing are not queer, spoiling his image. Conflicts between numerous organizations roszczacymi the correct to legalization fights for the championship of the creation metamorphose it impracticable to authenticate a like hierarchy of players in different consequence categories. The status quo is nearly the same in layman boxing. Payment this why and wherefore, the IOC has time again threatened to massacre boxing from the Olympics, especially after the several scandals associated with the level of refereeing and some werdyktami judges. To bad reviews allowing for regarding boxing help off selfsame genuine injuries the players, and peaceful toxic accidents.
