Services for Organizations
The DeVos Institute of Arts Management has served more than 1,000 organizations from over 80 countries. While environments, objectives, and disciplines vary, each Institute client shares the desire to create, market, and sustain exemplary cultural programs.
The Institute's customized consultancies are designed for organizations at all stages in the life cycle, including:
institutions seeking a strategic “refresh” or visioning process to
propel the organization to the next level of excellence
- Those that know that “something’s not quite right” and that recalibration in several key areas is likely necessary
- Those requiring immediate, comprehensive evaluation and an intensive level of support
- New and emerging organizations seeking a planned, steady approach to building a strong foundation and maximizing opportunity
undergoing a leadership succession at the executive, programmatic, or
board levels that can benefit from short-term assistance in one or more
The Institute's core service provides in-depth, comprehensive, implementable strategic plans.
The Institute's Organizational Audit results in a renewed focus on the most salient issues facing a client, as well as a series of short-term recommendations to stabilize or strengthen an organization.
The Institute offers "business unit" planning support in marketing, fundraising, and other areas.
The Institute offers short- and long-term training, planning, and evaluation intensives for board and staff teams.
The Institute works with new organizations from pre-development and capital planning to organizational development and inaugural season management.
The Institute, in partnership with the Orange County School of the Arts, offers a suite of services for arts schools in today's increasingly complex environment.
The Orange County School of the Arts, a national model for sustained excellence in art school management, and the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland, a global leader in arts management training and consultation, are pleased to offer a two day training and consultation program for senior executives, administrative staff, and board leadership of arts schools nationwide.
