PLANNING PRINCIPLES

A set of planning principles* guides every Vergeront Museum Planning project. Distilling lessons learned through a wide-range of projects over the years, these principles are based on how a museum effectively puts its mission to work on behalf of its community.

Context
  • Focus on stakeholders.
  • Set planning in its larger organizational context.

Ownership

  • Create ownership from the outset.
  • Let leaders lead.

Clarity

  • Define core concepts.
  • Build organizational understanding.
  • Discover the museum’s real self.

Learning

  • Learn from the past; prepare for future; assess the present realistically.
  • Place learning at the center.

Impact

  • Convert intentions to outcomes.
  • Solve more than one problem at a time.
