The information in the original Post has been included in Chapter 11 – Organization of the Plan of my new book – “Crash Course in Strategic Planning“
“The generally accepted organization of a strategic plan is similar to the template outlined later. Obviously, many plans exclude the word “statement” after mission and vision, and there are certainly other useful words, such as Declaration of Purpose, Supreme Mandate, and so forth that can be substituted to make your strategic plan as unique as your library. Just remember your audience.
Strategic plans come in as many styles and forms as there are libraries. Finding one that works for you is important because your plan is something that you will use and that will benefit your staff and the library from the significant amount of work that went into developing it.” [Pg. 73]
