How to Develop an Effective Strategic Plan for Your Library
Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 2 -3 pm, EST

This webinar will demonstrate how important a sound strategic plan is for libraries to accomplish their mission in an effective and rational way. An adequate strategic plan will allow librarians and staff to work as a team, under a patron-centered philosophy, taking the maximum advantage of existing talent, budget, space, and technological resources. A well-developed strategic plan is an indispensable tool for effective decision making in the workplace and will promote pro-active initiatives instead of a reactive attitude towards service implementation.

Librarians will learn how to develop a strategic plan based on the results of the analysis of the library’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. They will learn what these are and how to decide the library’s future based on this analysis (environmental scanning). They will learn how to prioritize their time, energy, talents, and resources to maximize the library’s impact on their community.
