Numerous small museums feel they do not have the time or staff to carry out strategic planning. Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko provides an approach for small museums considering strategic planning, adapted from the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum. Catlin-Legutko outlines the steps for strategic planning preparation and assessing whether an organization is ready for this step.
Strategic planning is organized in three key processes: 1) Preparation 2) Facilitation 3) Formatting
Catlin-Legutko explains each phase with easy-to-follow instructions. Charts and checklists guide small museums in creating a strategic plan and evaluating the effectiveness of its implementation.
