In times of significant change, museums, galleries and other
cultural institutions need a clear sense of mission, achievable
goals, effective leadership, and thoughtful management. This course

applying principles and practices that foster relevant and
successful cultural institutions. You strengthen your ability to:

    *    Shape the structure and culture of organizations
    *    Articulate mission, goals, and performance objectives
    *    Provide effective leadership and decision making
    *    Develop and implement policy
    *    Support, develop and manage staff and volunteers
    *    Plan and manage financial and other resources
    *    Undertake strategic and operational planning
    *    Strengthen community involvement and support
