The article focuses on the three-year business plans and budget of the Calgary Public Library (CPL) in Calgary, Alberta. The CPL has tried various styles of three-year business planning. The CPL has even been able to collaborate with the process of the City's 25- to 30-year plans for land management. The City has developed a set of technology strategies that extend even beyond the three-year business planning cycle because they think that three years is insufficient to plan the realization of goals.
