Best of Core Forum webinar: A Roadmap for Evidence Based Strategic Planning

Date: Tuesday, February 7, 2023

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: The purpose of strategic planning is to create a plan for an
organization to move forward. It clarifies the mission and vision, and
names the priorities to inform resource allocation. This webinar is
grounded in the premise that the most valuable strategic plans are rooted
in evidence intentionally gathered by listening to diverse voices across a
library, its institution, and the broader environment. This interactive
session will describe the evidence-based strategic planning process at two
academic libraries, including an overview of tools and strategies. Through
this process, participants will develop the structure to help them
jumpstart the evidence-based strategic planning at their own library.

Learning outcomes:


   Attendees will be able to describe the five steps of evidence-based
   strategic planning.

   Attendees will be able to describe a variety of methods for gathering
   evidence to support a strategic plan.

   Attendees will be able to explain the value of gathering and using
   evidence to inform strategic planning.

   Attendees will identify 1-3 tools that would support evidence-based
   strategic planning in their local environment.
