Inter-departments - divisional opportunities Services cut prices, follow up Response time automated transactions, new version, more capability Value began to think about what you needed And some didnt turn out exactly as planned Hosted ILS service - launched, then discontinued Evergreen Member Snapshot struggled to get it out. Too long to
deliver Looked into the mirror Operational improvement is not a strategy for getting to the next level lyrasis.org Mission > Goal > Objective > Strategy>tactics Mission Why do our members want us to exist? Goal What do you want us to be?

Why LYRASIS? Why the Need? How do we Manage Innovation?

lyrasis.org An Odyssey lyrasis.org Our Context Pivot a person, thing, or factor having a major or central role, function, or effect
Disruption to interrupt the normal course or unity of Innovation the introduction of something new lyrasis.org Disruptive Technology Sustaining technology relies on
incremental improvements to an already established technology. Disruptive technology lacks refinement, often has performance problems because it is new, appeals to a limited audience and may not yet have a proven practical application. (Christensen,1997) lyrasis.org Disruptive Strategic Innovation
Strategic innovation means an innovation in ones business model that leads to a new way of playing the game. Disruptive strategic innovation is a specific type of strategic innovation namely, a way of playing the game that is both different from and in conflict with the traditional way. Examples include Internet banking, low-cost airlines, direct insurance, online brokerage trading, online distribution of news and home delivery of grocery services.

Does your organization work in a risk averse environment? Do you have the bandwidth, the leverage and administrative buy in to be strategic? Is LYRASIS commitment to Innovation more or less than what youd expect? Are you aware of any other consortia who are engaging in this way with and on behalf
of their members? Is this different, similar or better than what other membership orgs are doing? Do you have similar examples of strong innovation at your own institution? Or other initiatives too challenging to be addressed/tackled?
Are we telling this story correctly? Does this resonate with you? lyrasis.org please contact us for more info . Phone 800.999.8558
