Summary Each chapter of this book is focused on one stage of the strategic planning process. Such planning will help in meeting current challenges, as well as in developing flexible ways to approach future challenges. By combining both theoretical and real-life examples, the authors hope to cover situations that will prove helpful to other libraries considering such a project. -- adapted from introduction
