Measuring Museum Impact and Performance : Theory and Practice, Hardback Book

Measuring Museum Impact and Performance : Theory and Practice Hardback


Based on extensive research and decades of experience, museum analyst and planner John W.

Jacobsen provides both the theoretical underpinnings and the operational pragmatics of measuring any museum's intentional impact and performance by using 1,025 indicators drawn from 51 expert sources.

Measuring Museum Impact and Performance: Theory and Practice provides museum professionals internationally with a clear, very open process that will improve their museum's value and performance by selecting indicators that monitor whether they are realizing their desired public, private, personal and institutional values.

The book is not prescriptive, but liberating, as the framework recognizes that each museum needs to decide on its own purposes and priorities.
