CRKN has begun the process of its next strategic plan (2019-2024). The last full strategic planning process occurred in 2012/2013 leading up to the 2013-2016 Strategic Plan, that was then extended for a further two years. As part of the 2013-2016 Strategic Plan, extensive stakeholder and member engagement occurred that directed CRKN’s activities. Since that time, CRKN has continued to develop and expand its licensing capacity, tools, services, and collaborations, while the context in which CRKN and its Members operate has become increasingly complex.
In addition, in April 2018, CRKN merged with Canadiana.org to create a combined organization under the leadership of CRKN. This merger has expanded strategic opportunities and broadened our stakeholder community. As a vital element of the strategic planning process, we are looking to engage our member community and the stakeholder community, in part through focus groups and strategy sessions over the summer and fall of this year, culminating in a Board planning session in January 2019.
CRKN is looking to engage a Strategic Planning Consultant to lead our stakeholder consultation process. CRKN will work collaboratively with the selected Consultant, in both the planning, engagement, and analysis of the crucial stakeholder engagement phase, and will often look to the Consultant for input and feedback on the process and next steps.
