Immersion Session

Find the Right Planning Framework for Your Project

Monday, May 6
4:30 PM - 5:55 PM
Room: Grand Ballroom B (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)

Planning frameworks can be a useful tool for libraries struggling to managing competing priorities and projects, but some models may be better suited to specific environments than others. During this session participants will learn about three planning frameworks (Objectives and Key Results, Lean, and Balanced Scorecard) and hear from 3 speakers who will share their experiences implementing planning frameworks for routine goal setting as well as strategic planning.
