|It's easy to get lost when you reach crossroads. |
Having a prioritization strategy will always take
you where you want to go.
Over the next four weeks on this blog and at the upcoming American Alliance of Museums annual meeting in Baltimore, we’ll lay out this prioritization tool that focuses on these four sectors:
- Developing audiences;
- Building an internal coalition;
- Solidifying your reputation;
- Assessment and planning.
Hope to see you in Baltimore and at our session Small Museum Leadership Considered on Monday, May 20 at 8:45 am. We’ll also follow up on this topic on Tuesday morning during the Small Museum Table Talks at 7:30 am. Bring your coffee, your granola bar, whatever your morning elixir, and come chat with us and other small museum enthusiasts who will share what works in small museum settings. The table facilitators really want to hear from you as you reflect on the ideas and strategies you have employed.
