The On Demand 'Library Layout'

The Digital Library

When is the last time you entered a library - the type that has rooms full of books neatly arranged on shelves? Hopefully the memory is still fresh enough to connect with the explanation of the On Demand 'library layout'.

There are two 'wings' to this library - so imagine two of the above images to choose from - these are represented to the right: The General Resources 'wing', and the Workshop Topics 'wing'.

General Resources

Engine Room has designed and gathered information/resources during its many years of coaching businesses and from other business improvement related projects and activities.

The resources have been placed into 6 seperate 'rooms' based upon the style/type of resource material.

Workshop Topics

Engine Room delivers workshops on 12 topics. When you enter each topic 'room' you will notice three 3 'shelves':

Videos/Webinars/Podcasts | Articles/Case Studies | Slides - a selection from the workshop plus some extension slides to dive deeper or expand more broadly on the topic.

Each 'shelf' also has tools and posters to further support 'change agents' to apply the learning to the workplace. Happy exploring!
