Strategic management is an essential element that drives an organization’s success, yet many cultural organizations struggle to apply strategic thinking and entrepreneurial actions when it comes to day-to-day operations.
In her new book, Strategic Management in the Arts, published by Routledge, Concordia management lecturer Lidia Varbanova looks at the unique characteristics of organizations in the arts and culture sector and proposes groundbreaking solutions to help ensure they thrive.
On Wednesday, March 27, Varbanova will be joined by Concordia contemporary dance professor Silvy Panet-Raymond for a public discussion on how to tailor a strategic plan to arts and culture organizations in order to meet their unique objectives.
John Hobday, a long-time leader in arts management, broadcasting, philanthropy, corporate sponsorship and cultural advocacy, will also participate in the discussion, which is open to all.
A separate event celebrating the launch of Strategic Management in the Arts will be held at Chapters bookstore (1171 Ste. Catherine Street West, Montreal) on Friday, March 29, from 5 to 9 p.m. Lidia Varbanova will be on hand to sign copies of her book and talk more about the subject.
