And the Process-Oriented Will Inherit the Earth

A session at MCN 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

8:30am to 9:00am (PST)

Developing museum projects is becoming more complex, requiring new ways of managing multiple departments’ collaboration. But who’s managing this intricate process? And why is this even important?

Benchmarks for success are constantly shifting. Evaluating our results becomes more difficult to assess, Museums, like most organizations, are results-oriented. But often, our projects get mired in that old fable of the twelve blind men trying to describe the elephant. Each of us works in a silo that focuses only on our part of the plan. So, who is watching the process from beginning to end? How is the role of the process-oriented museum professional changing in this more complex development environment?

The _process_ we use to reach our goal is becoming as important as the results. And the key to success is how we work together: process-oriented and results-oriented people, each using different methods.
