Library Consortium Environmental and Organizational Assessment and Strategic Planning ConsultationSubmitted by Lori Ayre on Thu, 01/12/2017 - 11:31am
The Galecia Group has been working with NC Cardinal since May 2016. NC Cardinal is a consortium in North Carolina which provides a shared Evergreen system for 31 library systems across the state. The engagement includes:
- assessing existing services and operations
- identifying emerging needs and aspirations of shareholders, and
- creating a 5-year strategic plan to grow the system, enhance the services, and define a sustainable funding model
The final deliverable was a recommendations document and a planning document that was developed during a one-day workshop with the NC Cardinal Board. It included a calendar of prioritized activities to pursue over the next 3-5 years with assigned owners for each activity.
This engagement was led by Lori Bowen Ayre with Galecia Associates Lucien Kress and Sam McBane Mulford.
