Project Outcome: Integrating Project Outcome into Strategic Planning & Measuring Priority Areas

Thursday, December 7, 2017 | 1:00 PM Central

Register here.

PLA’s Project Outcome is a free online toolkit designed to help public libraries understand and share the impact of their programs and services by providing simple surveys and an easy-to-use process for measuring and analyzing outcomes. The panelists on this webinar have prioritized outcome measurement in their libraries and integrated Project Outcome into their strategic planning.

Participants in this webinar will learn how other libraries are aligning their outcome measurement with strategic priorities, measuring their success in priority program areas, and the changes libraries are able to make using outcome data to improve programming and better meet community needs. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences. REGISTER NOW!

The panelists on this webinar will also be presenting on Tuesday, March 20, at the PLA 2018 preconference, “Project Outcome Training Workshop: Tools for Measuring Patron Outcomes.”

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

Understand how other libraries are using Project Outcome’s surveys and tools to measure the outcomes of priority program and service areas;
Know how other libraries are aligning outcome data to strategic priority areas and using Project Outcome to help inform strategic planning; and
Be able to apply lessons learned and best practices for integrating Project Outcome in their library.
