MDEM are asking all organisations who engage with the programme to undertake the Business Diagnostic.
The Business Diagnostic is designed to help heritage organisations benchmark activity and identify what they are doing well, it will also help you to develop, improve and to monitor progress over time.
It aims to help your museum/heritage team develop collective agreement about development priorities, create improvement plans and through the support of Museum Development East Midlands, to access the necessary specialist support to help with the required changes. This requires an investment in time, commitment, awareness and honesty.
You will need to dedicate some time to complete the diagnostic. We advise this to be broken down into:
- An initial team meeting, bringing together the key personnel
- The completion of the diagnostic
- Agreeing the Action Plan and disseminating this to your organisation
Once you have completed the relevant sections as outlined below, please email the completed form to Heather Lomas, Programme Facilitator: firstname.lastname@example.org
