The Pyramid of Purpose

In an article I read recently, I learned about this tool for articulating your organisation’s strategy:

Pyramid of Purpose

 I liked how the process of constructing the pyramid led you through these key questions:

Question 1 – “why” – refers to your organization’s values, mission, and vision.
Question 2 – “what” – covers objectives and goals.
Question 3 – “how” – refers the actions needed to realize these goals.
Question 4 – “who” – refers to the people, systems and tools which deliver these.

I will definitely refer to this the next time I have to do a piece of work about library strategy.  You can read the complete article at
