Succession Planning

Succession planning is a crucial element of good governance and MDEM’s Organisational Health Check 2020 highlights succession planning as a key developmental need for many museums.

This MDEM short programme supports museums to consider all elements of good practice in succession planning and enables them to develop a focused and realistic plan for the future. Facilitated by Heather Lomas, MDEM will provide a blend of intensive support to a cohort of 6 museums. Museums who highlighted succession planning as a priority in the Organisational Health Check 2020 were invited to apply.

This programme aims to:

  • Support museums in developing plans for succession of trustees and boards
  • Champion diversity and encourage museums to have a range of people represented on their boards
  • Facilitate museums to develop effective plans and procedures for trustee recruitment.
  • Enable museums to develop equality action plans
  • Provide museums with peer group meetings, one to one support, resources and signposting
