Strategic planning for school libraries - wicked problems

  1. 1. Strategic Planning for School Libraries<br />Part one: Planning to deal with a wicked problem by facilitating shared understanding<br />
  2. 2. Strategic planning is about managing risk<br />What are the risks for school libraries?<br />What are the challenges?<br />What are the opportunities now and in the future?<br />If we don’t manage risk, what are the likely outcomes?<br />What is your current school library ‘brand’?<br />How are you perceived by your educational community?<br />If the knives come out, will they stand up and fight for the library and your job?<br />What value do they attach to you and your role?<br />
  3. 3. Critical success factors<br />Explicit support and backing from senior management team is crucial<br />Find a salesperson – someone with the gift of the gab – is it you?<br />Find teachers who are ready to work with you (teacher life-cycle)<br />Learn to speak curriculum, assessment, the language of pedagogy<br />Understand the nature of wicked problems<br />Understand social complexity, and the problems inherent in project work<br />
  4. 4. You are dealing with a very wicked problem<br />“How can I embed the school library in the curriculum, making it central to teaching and learning in my school?”<br />
  5. 5. Wicked problemsWhat are they?<br />Wicked problems have no right or wrong answer<br />Wicked problems have a no stopping rule – they keep throwing up more problems!<br />When you do come up with a solution, you will not know with certainty that it will work – you simply have to try implementing it, and assess the outcomes, be prepared to be flexible.<br />
  6. 6. Social and technological complexity<br />Working as a group to solve a wicked problem is difficult<br />It will be fraught with the potential for fragmentation<br />From social complexity – the range of people involved, their world views, the ‘language’ they speak<br />Technological complexity will be an issue – the language of technology, speed of change<br />
  7. 7. Working towards shared understanding<br />Recommended reading:Dialogue Mapping:  Building Shared Understanding of Wicked Problems by Jeff Conklin, Ph.D.<br />http://www.cognexus.org/wpf/wickedproblems.pdf<br />Compendium software for dialogue mapping<br />Improved facilitation processes<br />Real shared understanding can be achieved<br />Manage social and technological complexity<br />
  8. 8. Summarizing the process, so far<br />Understand why school libraries are at risk<br />Understand your existing library brand <br />Identify the changes you need to make<br />Connect to the curriculum, your school’s goals, vision and charter<br />Become comfortable speaking curriculum and the language of pedagogy<br />Begin to build the team to help you effect change<br />Understand the complexities and inherent risks in project work<br />Understand the nature of the wicked problem you are trying to solve<br />Get ready to work together to create a strategic plan and solve your wicked problem…<br />
