Today’s accelerated pace of decision-making combined with the emphasis on accountability and transparency increases the pressure on museum staffs and boards to efficiently and innovatively craft tactics and strategies.
Now the analytical tools and models used in other industries to analyze information and to explain decisions have been adapted for museums and historic sites. You can walk your board members, staff, donors, visitors, and other stakeholders through your decision-making process with ease.
The models are divided into three categories, according to their purpose:
The Organize Models are diagnostic tools that identify redundancies, complications, or obstacles to completing goals.
The Plan Models assess impacts and develop solutions to tactical issues.
The Strategize Models assess and analyze issues affecting an institution’s ability to implement its strategy.
