Operationalizing Your Strategic Plan
Friday, March 23, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Pennsylvania Convention Center, Room 113 ABC
Strategic plans are great! Well, they’re great for the library board, great for the website, great for next year’s strategic plan review… but are strategic plans great for staff? Staff want to know their work is connected to something bigger; however, we struggle to keep the plan in the forefront of the day to day operational work we do. Learn how using the lean planning approach of Hoshin planning can integrate your strategy with operations.
