SWOT

How about spending a moment editing a wiki called SWOTlibraries? SWOT stands for:

  • Strengths
  • Weaknesses
  • Opportunities
  • Threats

While I’m working this weekend on long-term visions, I will be part of a group exploring our organization using the SWOT methodology. Strengths and weaknesses are the internal part of your school, organization, or group. Opportunities and threats are external. The OT’s need to be addressed first, then the SW’s. Links between O’s and S need to be drawn. 

I believe in creative brainstorming and would like your help editing this wiki. Please go to swotlibraries.wikispaces.com and add your ideas. I think beautiful fall days are perfect for contemplating the future and how we can help to make libraries better.

    Hello Diane! I read your blog and contributed a couple of questions to your wiki. I wasn’t sure if you wanted more questions or some comments. I added questions. Now, if you want some answers, let me know.

    I want questions, answers, crazy ideas, and insane opportunistic beliefs. Bring them all on.
