These days, when change happens so fast and can significantly impact our libraries, how do we plan for the future? One idea is to dust off some tried-and-true planning techniques like environmental scanning. An environmental scan provides a systematic overview of the external factors that are important to your organization and indicates how (or whether) the organization can influence them. This knowledge can assist management in planning your organization's future course of action. This webinar will guide you step-by-step through the process of developing environmental scans, providing resources and tips to ensure that it’s a painless and efficient process.
Participants will learn:
• How to develop and document an environmental scan
• How to regularly update environmental scans
• How to incorporate environmental scanning as part of the planning process
