Summary Benefitting from over a decade of research-in-practice, Informed Systems: Organizational Design for Learning in Action identifies essential elements for 'learning in action' through information-focused and action-oriented information experiences that advance workplace inquiry and improve local situations. A systemic leadership model guides holistic (re)design of requisite workplace systems, relationships, and practices for nimble and sustainable organizational responsiveness amidst dynamically changing circumstances.

In 2010, she received the Distinguished Scholar Award for a lifetime of applied research accomplishments from the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University, California, USA. Key Points, Participatory systems design essentials for workplace information exchange and knowledge creation, Theory-based participatory action research illustrations of the efficacy of systems thinking interventions, Forward thinking frameworks for academic libraries in dynamically changing scholarly communications contexts, Action oriented and information focused leadership elements for robust learning organizations, Proven organizational transformation strategies, building upon theoretical concepts, for nimble responsiveness Book jacket.
