Description

The Manual of Strategic Planning for Cultural Organizations adopts a hollistic approach to the creative world of cultural institutions.

By encompassing museums, art galleries, gardens, zoos, science centers, historic sites, cultural centers, festivals, and performing arts, this book responds to the reality that boundaries are being blurred among institutional types-with many gardens incorporating exhibitions, many museums part of multidisciplinary cultural centers and festivals..

As cultural leaders transform the arts in the twenty-first century, this "whole career" manual will prepare readers for every stage.

Three key areas covered are: Leadership change. This chapter explains the role of strategic planning when an institution is going through the process of hiring a new director.

A question we are frequently asked is "Should the strategic plan precede the search process or should it wait until the new director takes up the position?" Institutional change.

Increasingly, cultural organizations are going through major change: from public-sector agencies to nonprofit corporations; from private ownership to non-profit status; from nonprofit status to a foundation, and many other variations.

This book addresses the role of strategic planning during these transitions.

Staff empowerment. This manual addresses the opportunities for staff at all levelsto grow by participating in strategic planning.

This edition focuses on how to engage and empower staff.

A Guide for Museums, Performing Arts, Science Centers, Public Gardens, Heritage Sites, Libraries, Archives, and Zoos is a game-changing book with broad reach into the cultural sector, while still serving the museum community.
