ALA Seattle Conference

I am in Seattle this week attending my first ALA conference.  What a great event!  I want to thank the dynamic attendees at my presentation yesterday.  I greatly enjoyed your comments, questions, and enthusiastic participation. 

As promised I have attached three documents related to business plan development in the password protected post below.  To access the documents please enter the one word password in lower case.  The password is the first word in the title of the presentation I gave at the ALA yesterday morning.  The word begins with the letter t.

The first document is a business plan quadrant tool to help associates evaluate where they can make the best investments of their time.  The second is a detailed business plan template with different sections for each activity.  I would recommend that the associates also use this as a tool for determining what kind of marketing activities to invest in.  My favourite plan is the third document – a short monthly action plan.  It lists some important questions for the associates to consider and leaves a blank space for writing in their monthly action items.

Please just give me a call or send me an email if you have any questions.
