Introducing Shape the FutureAn open and collaborative project to develop CILIPs Strategic Plan to 2020

Launched on the 23rd September

Runs to the 16th December

Combination of online, social media and face-to-face engagement:

#uklibchat & #CILIP2020 hashtagMember Network, SIGs & Branch meetings Online questionnaire Direct responsesStrategy Wall at CILIPs London offices

A collaborative projectShape the Future is an example of open strategy


The emerging landscape is too complex & the pace of change too rapid for any one group of individuals fully to encompass

A decentralised approach to strategy and planning enables the whole community to benefit from the insight & expertise of its members

Ownership of the strategy is shared and therefore more likely to represent the collective ideas and priorities of the community

The process itself serves both to engage existing members and encourage new people with new skills and insights to join the community

ObjectivesDeliver a planning process that is interesting, engaging and informative

Secure engagement in the concepts and aims of the Strategic Plan by the widest cross-section of CILIP members and stakeholders

Provide a coherent planning framework for staff in CILIP, CILIP in Scotland, CILIP Cymru, CILIP in Northern Ireland, Regional Member Networks, Special Interest Groups and Scottish Branches and other partners

Engage non-members, lapsed members, critics and competitors in an open and constructive dialogue about CILIPs values, priorities and services

Provide the foundation of a strong and sustainable organisation for the future

One CILIP, four Nations

A common vision & mission and shared goals

A culture of mutual respect and awareness

Delivering programmes which respond to national differences

Supporting and reinforcing cross-border collaboration across the UK
