The Mantra: The “Best of The Old, The Best of The New

The progressive, vital and essential organization/agency/entity needs to:

--Recognize the importance of the political, economic and social diversity of towns, cities, counties and regions.

--Support traditional democratic concepts to insure access.

--Acknowledge the need for new verbiage to describe professional objectives which reflect the changing realities of our world and the expectations for our changing institutions.

--Embrace all types of learning objectives for a diverse society as learning is a most important part of the mission.

--Accept the need for changes in the organizational dynamics of organizations.

--Recognize that technology is a tool and that real participation depends upon people, not just on technology.

--Integrate social media into the agency’s mission, goals and objectives.

--Join/Create the new partnerships/collaboration with other institutions.

--Create innovative partnerships with a variety of agencies, organizations and entities.

--Accept new obligations, accountability, and responsibilities within our institutions.

--Place a major emphasis on public value and impact.

--Embrace/Acknowledge the changing nature of authority, allowing for co-creation of content and input from both on-site and virtual participants as an ordinary part of agency operations.

--Agencies need to orient ourselves outwardly in order to become a major hub of “community communications.”

--Evolve the curriculum/skill sets for the training of professionals in order to address the demands and realities of the new environment.

--All stakeholders need to act as creative, progressive and flexible agents of change.

--The library, information, radio broadcasting, general business, and non-profit sectors are operating in the throes of an historical and significant evolutionary period of time. Many elements have come together in a "perfect storm" to cause this situation: changing customer needs and expectations, the digital/technological/information revolution, new workplace practices and procedures, an American society in transition and the challenging realities of shrinking budgets and available resources. As a result, these variables are encouraging and causing organizations, agencies & companies to contemplate planned and progressive organizational change in order to insure a smooth transition in the direction of solidifying a successful, productive, progressive and vital long-term future.

--In today's challenging public and private sector world, many organizational entities are doing things they never thought they'd do to stay competitively vibrant and meaningful within their respective sectors.

--For-profit and non-profit agencies are reinventing themselves for the sake of sustainability. Organizational models require flexibility in the ever changing landscapes of our towns, cities, counties, communities, regions, marketplaces and service areas. Flexibility will allow libraries, radio stations, small businesses and the non-profit sector to truly address the unique needs of the communities they serve. Flexibility will position these agencies as instruments of valuable community/marketplace solutions...whatever the challenge. Funding and resource availability has decreased for most organizations and individuals over the past few years and this trend should continue for the most part. Competition has heated up for many types of traditionally oriented modeled organizations as new types of entities enter evolving marketplaces as service providers.

Case in point: libraries and other types of essential public sector and private sector organizations and agencies are striving to keep pace with political, economic, technological and social changes partly because the definition of these and other entities themselves have changed. As a prime example of this evolutionary change, much as newspapers, magazines and book publishers have come to realize — though not nearly quickly enough — thinking of oneself foremost as a purveyor of printed material is a strategic if not fatal mistake in the 21st century; as such, so it is realized: flexibility and creativity in a period of great change must be an essential "Caique-Mersey" organizational characteristic or trait.

 

The methodology:

•Understand the current situation.

•Understand the desired performance.

•Determine the gap.

•Create a framework.

An Operational Mantra for The Caique-Mersey Group & Staff:


"My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people.”

--Steve Jobs
