Job titles can be difficult to translate but when attending international conferences Danish job titles does not make sense to most participants – but does any title?
When you need to contact another organization job titles can help you find the right person to connect with fast and easy – But within your own organization – Do job titles do anything other that confirming a structure that is not the best for getting and developing ideas?
My own job title would translate to “Head of Library Development” – But that does not make sense. We need to get ideas and develop them and our libraries together in our organizations and beyond. I see myself as a facilitator of crowdsourced ideas about library development world-wide. We get better ideas and develop them better that way. Afterwards we need to fit them to our local communities to add value there.
So come work with me – I work for libraries – What is your idea?
