Evidence and evaluation: Practical tips on demonstrating your value to stakeholders

Picture of a white puzzle with a black piece missing

CILIP conference time is here again! This year's conference is being held in industrious Manchester but before you get excited about the conference itself, we'd like you to know that LIRG are holding a workshop the day before the conference.

Measuring up for success: A practical guide to demonstrating your value and impact to stakeholders

The 'Measuring for success' workshop is free for LIRG members and we will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) immediately following the workshop. The workshop is open to CILIP and non-CILIP members.

Evidence and evaluation are essential tools in demonstrating value

The strongest arguments are those that are supported by carefully compiled evidence. Telling stakeholders that your service is valuable and necessary is not as effective a message if you can't provide evidence to back up your claim.

Presenting evidence to stakeholders that clearly demonstrates:

  • The value of your service
  • Evaluates service performance
  • Communicates your findings

...is an important part of illustrating value, keeping information services open and allowing them to evolve for the future.

If you can demonstrate the value of your service in this way then you will be empowered.

Sign up for our workshop if you would like to understand more about using evidence from your research to demonstrate value to stakeholders.

We hope that our workshop will prove useful for all attendees.
