About this book

Forward planning is essential for most organizations, but especially so for museums and heritage bodies, with responsibilities stretching forward to infinity. And, moreover, with limited and ever more constrained funding, careful planning is essential if resources are to match needs. A simple transfer of ideas and principles of business planning from industry, commerce, or government to the world of museums is not adequate; the particular needs of the heritage context must be addressed. This large format book is designed to provide a specific set of practical guidelines for museum and heritage professionals. Forward Planning provides a complete basic guide, from the principles on which planning is founded, through drawing up the plan itlself, implementation and monitoring, through to the wider potentials that good planning permits. All the contributors to the book speak from wide practical experience. A full bibliography and suggestions for further reading are included.
