Plan – Implement – Communicate: Building Strategic Planning and Storytelling Capacity for Community Impact

Is your library strategically focused for community impact? Is the Board doing their part to maintain momentum? Are you sharing your success story effectively?

At this session, you’ll learn how to develop an achievable strategic plan that’s right for your library, not a plan that will sit on a shelf only trotted out once a year for an update. Your Board-led strategic planning process will result in a plan that has strong buy-in from all stakeholders involved and is rooted in community needs.

With a great plan in place, you’ll learn the Board’s role in implementation and how aligning updates and reports with plan milestones will upgrade your monthly meetings and create clear understanding about progress towards plan goals.

Finally, you’ll see how to connect the plan and implementation to communicate stories of community impact. You’ll understand how to use these messages to show value and community transformation.

Through these three steps – plan, implement, and communicate – you’ll transform the Board’s capacity to effectively guide the library – and community – to an aspirational future.
