Mergers Panel from Tech Boot Camp 2021:
How do you manage merging two systems together? Changing a logo or name patrons have known for years? What kind of impact does that have across the system, with staff, and with patrons? Where does the role of IT start in this process, does it ever end, and why is IT so involved anyway?
Join this panel of multiple systems that have recently undergone a merger or rebranding to hear about how they handled it, what best practices they came up with, and what they would do differently next time. We will talk about the benefits of rebranding, the opportunity to re-introduce a system to the local community, and some of the difficulties along the way.
