Chapter 7

Learning Organizations and Competitive Intelligence

Abstract

This chapter discusses the importance of strategic planning to achieve the goals of academic libraries as learning organizations. Strategic planning determines the programs that help the library as an organization survive and also the levels at which they would be funded. Learning organizations and competitive intelligence facilitate developing planning cycles for decision-making. The use of competitive intelligence in library management may help mitigate the difficult climate facing universities today. The position of the academic library within the organization to make better management decisions is discussed.
