Design a new business model

Important paradigm shifts are now affecting the cultural sector: the stagnant state of public funds, ongoing socio-political changes and digitalization are leading us to re-examine the functioning and mission of cultural organizations. How can they help to optimize their own resources? How will they position themselves in the face of increasingly complex requirements from public authorities and partners, particularly in the development of audiences and cultural participation? How can they reorganize their business model in order to respond appropriately to new societal challenges? Many business models can inspire cultural organizations…


Design your strategy

Defining a strategy means establishing an action plan, based on your artistic and cultural values, in order to achieve the defined objectives in the short, medium and long term.

A clear strategy is an essential working tool: within your organisation, it clarifies objectives and allows you to allocate your resources in a transparent way. Externally, the strategy reflects your ambition and facilitates communication with your various stakeholders (artists, public, public authorities, patrons, sponsors, etc.)

Method used :

  • Identification of the current situation
  • Analysis and criticism; strengths and weaknesses;
  • Analysis of the context and in particular of inputs; risks and threats;
  • Design of strategic areas in line with the situation;

Design an efficient cultural policy

Cultural policies make it possible to develop a cultural dynamic in a given territory. Despite the fact that culture is growing on the basis of private initiatives in Switzerland, public authorities have the task of describing objectives, expected effects and impacts on the basis of transparent and measurable indicators.

Our method is the following :

  • Identification of the current cultural programme ;
  • Analysis according to different criteria (production method, different art discipline, Price policies, outreach, annual calendar of events, costs, self-financing, cultural éducation and community, socio-professional criteria, governance, etc.);
  • Identification of strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities ;
  • Identification of external factors acting or about to act on the cultural offer;
  • Development of strategic areas in line with the political vision ;
  • Definition of indicators and target values;
  • Communication of the new strategy .

Assess your activities

The assessment of cultural policies as a whole or of a sectoral policy should be part of a regular quality process instituted by funders, be they private (foundations) or public. Indeed, the regular assessment of cultural policies is an excellent opportunity to:

  • cultivate a constructive dialogue between fund recipients and donors;
  • verify the effectiveness of the support instruments put in place;
  • analyse the efficiency of public funds allocated
  • control their effects and impacts.

Coach you in your specific HR Issues for the artistic sector

Human resources are still poorly represented in the field of culture. And yet, as in other sectors, they have a central role to play in guaranteeing “happiness” (HR is called “happiness management” in several Anglo-Saxon organisations) and the “health” of the institution.

The field of human resources covers sectors as varied as recruitment, continuous training and professional development, regular interviews, conflict management, and salary management.

We propose to support organizations in the following areas:

  • Identification of the profile required for recruitment;
  • Recruitment;
  • Support in case of conflict management and change management.
