jMUSE IS A STRATEGIC ADVISER, PARTNER, AND FACILITATOR FOR INSTITUTIONS AROUND THE WORLD.
Cultural institutions have a unique capacity to engage, reinvigorate and strengthen communities; spark crucial conversations about the future; and play a significant role in confronting modern challenges.
The vision jMUSE brings to all of its projects prioritizes the sharing of information, leadership strategies, and forthright evaluations of success and failure. Ultimately, jMUSE seeks to empower cultural institutions to use their available resources wisely and to fearlessly advance their fields as a whole.
We create Opportunity Assessments to help clients understand their organizational needs, evaluate their ability to secure philanthropic investments, assess their value proposition, and outline a plan for growth. The assessments examine institutional positioning, benchmark new opportunities, analyze key performance indicators across four categories (impact and strategy, health and sustainability, vision, and criteria for success), and recommend a path forward as a key cultural and educational resource.
We help build organizational capacity and develop resiliency for our clients; elevate their mission-driven programming; develop new audiences; and establish models for institutional collaboration.
We Build Networks that combine local community engagement with institutional innovation, expertise and action.
We serve as a trusted advisor to governing boards and chief executives. For a limited number of clients, we develop and manage institutional signature projects.
jMUSE not only cultivates “big ideas,” but we are committed to sharing resources that will spark collaboration, circulate professional expertise and inspiring ideas, and secure the contemporary relevance—and bright future—of cultural institutions.
Our objectivity, thoughtful research, and wide experience with planning and implementation processes, have helped bring bracing clarity and fresh vision to organizations around the world.
