|The New Planning for Results|
The New Planning for Results: A Streamlined Approach is a planning model specifically designed for public libraries. It assures that the library plan is built to meet the needs of the community by allowing community involvement in the development of the library's plan. The process puts everyone in the library on the same page and allows for clearly defined goals for management and staff. It enhances the library's visibility in the community as a soundly-operated agency and a worthwhile partner for joint projects along with enhancing the library's position in applying for grants from foundations or other sources. Along with providing an excellent public relations opportunity!
The new streamlined approach takes a small amount of time to produce viable, valuable and visible results.
New Planning for Results
is built on three basic assumptions:
2. Excellence is possible for both small and large libraries - it rests more on commitment than on unlimited resources.
3. Excellence is a moving target - even when achieved, excellence must be continually maintained.
