While strategic planning is regularly done by associations, corporations, and other large entities under the guidance of a facilitator, school librarians need to develop and implement a strategic plan to avoid drowning in everyday details. Start with a Mission and build a two-to-three-year plan which incorporates all the components of a strategic plan. Be able to clearly see your direction and be able to celebrate your achievements.
After this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Articulate the purpose and value of a strategic plan.
- Establish a working knowledge of the components of a strategic plan.
- Draft a strategic plan for their library program.
Note: This workshop is best suited to a full day program, but can be abbreviated for a half day program.
