Shaping Outcomes is a practical approach to informing library and museum personnel about Outcomes-based Planning and Evaluation (OBPE).

If you answer "yes" to any of the following, you should consider OBPE training for your organization:

  • Does my institution have any projects or programs offering repeated contact with our target audience?
  • Does my institution have stakeholders or funders who want to know what difference we are making in the lives of our patrons or audience?
  • Does my institution have internal needs for planning and assessing the impact of our projects or programs?
