Relocation processes and reduction of space


In this chapter can be found three case studies of change projects: the relocation of a public library and the reduction of space in two academic libraries, one in combination with major construction works. The following sections describe these processes in detail, each beginning with the change project in the library, followed by the leadership style and other aspects during this change process and the used or, rather, preferred communication style and tools. At the end of each case study recommendations for other leaders facing a similar change process can be found.
