Benchmarking for Success: Making the Case in a Competitive Environment
Articulating the results and success stories for your orchestra may be the difference between surviving and thriving in today’s economic climate. Learning how to document and measure your orchestra’s successes is critical not only to your organization’s health and stability but to making the case in a competitive environment. This seminar is open to all with an interest in evaluation and benchmarking, and will provide participants with an overview of performance measurement and an introduction to a tool to articulate successful outcomes. Take a look at what constitutes a successful strategy and strategic process; definitions of outcomes within the arts sector; gaining staff buy-in; and data collection methods. We will introduce dashboard reporting tools, continuous improvement processes, and opportunities to compare performance.
