Although rarely linked, there are a number of similarities between strategic planning and organizational development. Both approaches are used by administrators to manage change in a systematic fashion. Strategic planning emphasizes environmental scanning and goal setting, whereas organizational development relies on intervention techniques, such as benchmarking and team building. The focus of this book is on organizational politics of strategic planning, an interdisciplinary subject that is often overlooked in both management and library literatures. Libraries enter into strategic planning by a variety of routes, from dynamic technology and rising costs to budget cuts and pressure for change. This book guides library manager toward a greater understanding of the role of strategic planning and its attendant responsibilities. Academic, public, and special librarians alike will benefit from explanations, real-life examples, and time-tested recommendations.
