Description

Forward planning is esential for most organizations, but especially so for museums and heritage bodies, with responsibilities stretching forward to infinity. Forwrd Planning provides a complete basic guide, from the principles on which planning is founded, through drawing up the plan itself, implementation and monitoring, through to the wider potentials that good planning permits. All the contibutors to the book speak from wide practical experience. A full bibliography and suggestions for further reading are included.

Reviews

`In its avowed intention to be a "basic guide" it has undoubtedly succeeded. There is nothing in it which would be incomprehensible to a junior curator preparing for a qualification in museums studies. It certainly encourages the idea that forward planning is a positive, responsible and straightforward process which need deter no museum professional.' - Museums Journal

`…should provide additional guidance and help to all those museums … engaged in producing and maintaining their plans.' - Scottish Museums News
