ARL has released a YouTube video of the Balanced Scorecard Webcast, held on December 11, 2012. The presentation covers the strategic aspects of the scorecard, its development and objectives, goals for its implementation, promoting its purpose, and analyzing results. It also describes ways to create improvement strategies based on the experiences of a number of ARL libraries engaged in the ARL Scorecard Initiative.
The webcast features the work of the most recent group of libraries to implement the balanced scorecard for their strategy development, management, and measurement efforts: Florida State University, New York University, University of Calgary, and Case Western Reserve University. It also includes an update on the experiences of McMaster University, one of the earlier participants in this initiative, and highlights aspects of the implementation from which other libraries can benefit as they engage in strategy development. The presenters were Mark Cutler of Ascendant Strategy Management Group, Rachel Besara and Michelle Demeter of Florida State University, Mary McConnell of the University of Calgary, Nina Servizzi of New York University, Gina Midlik of Case Western Reserve University, and Vivian Lewis of McMaster University.
A number of ARL libraries have expressed interest in forming another cohort to implement the balanced scorecard. A call for participation will be issued during the week of January 28.
