American Library Association, Measuring Progress Against Strategic Goals

Project dates: 2014-2016

Client type: Non-Profits and Foundations

Key topics: Learning and Capacity Strengthening, Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research, Organizational Development

Related Country(ies): United States


The American Library Association’s (ALA) Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) works to ensure that libraries have a voice in information policy debates, and to promote full and equitable intellectual participation by the public. After adopting a new strategic plan, OITP asked EnCompass to help design and develop a monitoring system that would assess progress against the new strategic goals. 

In addition to designing the monitoring plan, EnCompass conducted interviews with key stakeholders to identify synergies between OITP’s strategic priorities and the interests of ALA Public Policy Advisory Council members. As a result, ALA was able to understand how best to engage their Advisory Council.
