Preston Argus Will Exhibit at American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting

Preston Argus will exhibit at the American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting, held at the Phoenix Convention Center from May 6 to May 9, 2018.

MuseOps, Preston Argus’ signature service, will be showcased at booth #2033.

MuseOps helps museums and historic sites analyze information and make decisions that are easily explainable to staff, board members, donors, the community, and other stakeholders.  It provides an independent and objective analysis – using SWOTs, Force Field Analyses, Risk Mitigation Models, Blindspot Worksheets, GAP Models, Tree Diagrams, and Cause & Effect Models to transform information into insight.  These analytical models help institutions maximize their resources to best fulfill their mission and provide quality experiences for their visitors.

“Based on the book Museum Operations:  A Handbook of Tools, Templates, and Models, the MuseOps service allows people to order analytical models over the web.  Conference attendees have the opportunity to review samples of the models and to learn more about the use of models,” says Samantha Chmelik, principal, Preston Argus.  “Running models is like assembling a puzzle – putting together different pieces of information.  The only difference is that you don’t know what the final picture should be.”

Portfolio samples and process descriptions are available at www.museops.com.  Copies of Museum Operations:  A Handbook of Tools, Templates, and Models will be available at the conference bookstore and the Rowman & Littlefield booth.
