Balanced Planning That Works!

Do you need help creating your next Strategic Plan? Are you dreading the frustration of the old, slow, cumbersome planning process?

LET NEO HELP MAKE YOUR NEXT STRATEGIC PLAN EASY AND EFFECTIVE!

weight_scalesCreate a strategic plan that works, by combining tried and true, traditional planning tools with elements of The Balanced Scorecard. This planning model is effective, takes less time and involves everyone from your community members to the Board, management and staff of your library. Your Planning Team will be trained to continually monitor and report progress – and remove roadblocks. Create a balanced strategic plan that works for today’s libraries!

Comment from Andrew Mangels, Director, Westlake Porter Public Library:

“Cathy has done a superlative job leading Westlake Porter Public Library through the Balanced Scorecard strategic planning process.  She attended a library board meeting and gave a succinct but compelling description of the process and how we, as an organization would benefit from using this tool.  The Balanced Scorecard is an excellent opportunity to engage the entire library and community.  With the staff of NEO-RLS as our consultant, we look forward to completing a timely, relevant and measurable plan.”

NEO has created plans over the past couple of years for many libraries, including Burton Public Library, Westlake Porter Public Library, Orrville Public Library, Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, Ritter Public Library, Mansfield-Richland County Public Library, Kirtland Public Library, Euclid Public Library and Wayne County Public Library.

Contact any of those directors to hear how NEO’s system and planners can work for you!  “Non-library’ consultants can’t offer your community, board, managers and staff the industry knowledge and experience that you can get from working with your regional library! And, we’re affordable, especially if you purchase a discount membership and save even more!
