Provides an in-depth analysis of strategic management concepts and techniques and how they can be applied to the planning and delivery of library and information services. Offers comprehensive guidance on the whole strategy process, from appraisal and assessment, through the formulation of mission, vision, values, and objectives, to managing implementation and improvement. The text is supported by 38 figures and many examples drawn from the real world of library and information service practice across the globe, and the chapters and sections are structured for use as either a narrative text or a reference source. Contains eight chapters: Planning paradigms; Environmental issues; Strategic focus; Strategy formation; Money matters; Achieving change; Securing capability; and Managing flexibility. Each chapter concludes with a summary checklist and a set of annotated references to management and library literature enabling the reader to pursue topics of interest in more depth. Appendices include additional checklists and practical examples.
